When attempting to find a simple, engaging, and unbiased approach to world religions for her own family, Marilyn McFarlane discovered such a book did not exist. Understanding the strong need for children to build both respect and knowledge of a variety of religions, regardless of their own faith, McFarlane created Sacred Stories: Wisdom from World Religions.With beautiful spot illustrations, easy-to-understand descriptions, and essential stories from Buddhism, Christianity, Hinduism, Islam, Judaism, Native American, and Sacred Earth (Wicca), Sacred Stories strives to both engage and educate young readers.
Each captivating story and illustration brings to life the key tenets of a particular belief system, while the comprehensive glossary and resource list enables readers to explore more deeply. Sacred Stories is perfect for both parents and teachers who want to expand their child’s understanding of world culture.
