Out of the Ark: Stories from the World's Religions

Anita Ganeri, Author, Jackie Morris, Illustrator Houghton Mifflin Harcourt P $18 (104p) ISBN 978-0-15-200943-4
Ganeri's retelling of stories from a wide range of the world's religions provides a much-needed book on comparative religious studies for children. The stories are categorized by theme-Creation stories, flood stories, lives of religious leaders, etc.-so that children can see for themselves the wide variety of understanding available globally. There are a few unfortunate factual errors, particularly in the telling of tales shared by Jews and Christians, wherein the stories are labeled either Jewish or Christian, instead of both. For the most part, however, this book, with its joyous watercolors, will help children learn and value the stories from many of the world's faiths. Ages 8-12. (Mar.)
