Everyone Prays: Celebrating Faith Around the World by Alexis York Lumbard
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
Disclaimer: I received this book free from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. I did not receive any form of compensation.
Religions from across the globe all share one important practice everyone prays! In this bright and simple concept book, young readers are transported around the world to discover just how important the act of prayer is to all of the major religions. With an appendix to help answer questions children might have, Everyone Prays offers young hearts and minds a chance to learn that, although people from other places and cultures may seem different, we all share the diverse world of faith and prayer.
This was an illustrated book that depicts people from various cultures and religions praying. The sentence structure in the book makes it seem like this book is for very early stage readers. However, they used some words that early readers would not be able to understand. So the writing style doesn't necessarily fit the reader age.
Plus the illustrations seemed a little off to me. However, that is just my opinion.
I did like that in the end of the book, it had some general quick definitions of the various religions mentioned in the book, but those definitions were over simplified for adults and too advanced for young readers.
Any book bought through the Amazon link below will have a portion of the sale go towards the Unitarian Fellowship of South Florida.
