World religions

The Kids Book of World Religions
by Jennifer Glossop
illustrated by John Mantha

A good primer on world religions, the book is comprised of four sections divided by region. So it decribes religions from India, the Middle East, East Asia, and other continents (Africa, North America, Australia). It covers many of the same religions as in the previous books with the exception of Confucianism and the very brief summaries of Afro-Caribbean, Native North American, and Aborigine traditions.

Fact boxes and simple language make the book an easy read.
