What are Religions and Worldviews? 

An Introduction to Beliefs Around the World 

by Deborah Lock 

Lion Children's Books 

Rated: 5 

Back of the Book: “An introduction to religion and worldviews through the explanation of keywords to inform and expand understanding. 

Find out about the beliefs and practices of the six main world religions: Judaism, Christianity, Islam, Hinduism, Buddhism, and Sikhism, and also beliefs held by different worldviews, such as Humanism. Discover the meaning of key terms such as enlightenment, covenant and paradise. Provides a quick and accessible reference to places of worship, festivals, holy books, main prayers, and viewpoints. 

The Keywords series is written and designed to support children develop good reference skills through asking questions and clearly identifying key terms, so that the information needed is quickly found on a page. Facts are presented in easy-to-read bite-size explanations with visuals. Includes contents page, index and glossary for children to access the information and definitions, expand vocabulary and engage with the topic.” 

Impressions: This was the perfect book to read with my boys (6 and 10 years old). My oldest son had been learning about world religions a bit through the Story of the World curriculum and this was ideal for my younger son to be introduced to this topic and be part of the conversation. It can be challenging to understand all the aspects of others' views but this defined each religion and worldview with easy-to-understand descriptions. We were able to talk about our family's faith and how it shared similarities and differences to others' worldviews. I think it is important to have a basic understanding of such material and I was happy to have found this book.  

I received this book via NetGalley and the publisher in exchange for my honest review shared here.
