A breath of fresh air This is a timely book with contents from a wide range of sources. It is well arranged and well illustrated. People tend to forget that they all have the same God. If some of the book's contents were quoted without noting the source, people might have difficulty identifying the religious origin. While the book is written for children, I would recommend it for the entire family. Perhaps it is time for people to consider that their beliefs are not very different. Perhaps children can learn to accept each other, and the next generation can learn to coexist in peace. On. "Wonderful!" according to Mel. This is a fabulous book that shares spiritual words from many worldwide religions and uses beautiful illustrations to accompany them! As a person who embraces different aspects of many religions, I found this to be a valuable resource for teaching my child. And after reading the book, you get a sense of how all religions are very similar and striving for the same things - peace and harmony with all that is around us and with our Higher Power.. "for the young at heart" according to R. Reilly. A wonderful book, and not just for children! Charming illustrations by several artists and 70 beautiful prayers from around the world. Anyone interested in spirituality should love this book.
The book will make a lovely gift for families that want to embrace spirituality in many forms, from Christian to Papago to Jewish to African to Sioux to Hindu to Celtic, and beyond. Amen.

Prayers, proverbs, poems, songs--every culture has these simple gifts. "May every creature abound in well-being and peace."
