From the Publisher
Christians, Jews, and Muslims all pray. So do Hindus and Buddhists. Many others pray too. So begins Everyone Prays, a bright and colorful concept book celebrating the diverse ways that people pray. In a vibrant yet accessible manner, young readers are transported on a visual tour across the globe. They will discover the Native American sun dance ceremony, visit the sacred sites in Jerusalem, behold the Shinto shrines in Japan, watch Maasai dances in Kenya, see pilgrimages to the river Ganges in India, and much, much more. 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. And what a bright and beautiful world it is "

Full-Text Reviews
Horn Book Guide (Fall 2014)
This is a very simple introduction to the role of prayer in many world religions. The vividly colored illustrations often include more interesting details than the bare-bones text; informative notes on major religions and on the illustrations flesh out the presentation. This volume will be useful for comparative religion studies (though there's no mention that many people choose not to pray).
