I Belong


image

Themes of diversity and faith are explored though this compelling introduction to some of the main religions of the world. Complicated religious concepts are elucidated through a unique narrative, as told from the perspective of a child who follows the religion. The young narrator shares first-hand experiences of worship, festivals, and ceremonial observances. Your readers will also learn about the religion's effect on lifestyle, daily activities, and dress. Key figures and important texts and relics are also explored.



Reviews

Series Review: I Belong
"Each volume is narrated from the point of view of a child. With two or three paragraphs per page, it covers an array of issues, all explained within the context of the narrator's own life: celebrations, sacred places and persons, prayer, and personal behavior. High-quality photographs superimposed on a pale, mosaiclike background show the narrator with family, worshiping, reading, and participating in religious events."
--School Library Journal

Book Review: I Belong to the Jewish Faith
"...[the perspective of a small boy and his family] helps children see how various religious ceremonies are celebrated with families and members of like faith. It is written respectfully and without judgment. The disclaimer is a nice touch to let readers know that Sam's faith is uniquely his and not indicative of all Jewish families."
--Tammy Nichols, Cleburne ISD
