Here's a different perspective on ABC picture books, ABCs of the World's Religions, written by Dr. Vicki Michela Garlock and illustrated by Raman Bhardwaj. In it, children and their elders can explore religions of the world together.

From 'A is for ALTARS that hold special things' to 'Z is for ZAKAT, which reminds Muslims to give', this volume highlights holy days like Christmas, religious leaders like Buddha, sacred sites like Kaaba, rituals like chanting Om in meditation, and much more.

Aspects of many religions are mentioned, including Hinduism, Buddhism, Sikhism, Judaism, Christianity, and Islam, while some of their commonalities are featured, such as prayer, fasting, and donation to those in need. Overall these ABCs promote tolerance and understanding.
