  • I saw a bunch of them in my library yesterday. They have a section in the children's section of our library. I didn't get any of them though, so I can't name any for you.

    I read my kids the Bible twice a day, and our other Christian books we get at our church bookstore.

    But yes, they had books for kids on different religions and on religion in general.

  • I got the kids a coloring book on the Catholic religion I found at walmart. As they got older I started going to a Catholic store. I purchased one for my husband at boarders.

  • I used the Eyewitness encyclopedias with my kids even at that age. They have several concerning religions and the pictures and illustrations are incredible. When my kids were toddlers, we mostly just looked at the pictures and talked about different things just a little here and there. We read them in more depth as the kids got older.

  • Do an Amazon search. There are books on every imagined subject.

  • My children have the Bible Storie book and I read it to them. They also have books of Greek, Roman, Celtic and other Pagan myths. But those are in the other room and I don't have the titles at my finger tips... I'll be back later with a list.

    I do want to note though, that we treat religious books as we do any other in this house. They are not told that there is any difference between Sleeping Beauty and Jesus or Odysius around here... We do not believe in teaching religion. But we feel it's easier to grasp the religion once you have an idea what the surrounding myths contain. So this way no matter what path(s) they choose to study or follow, they will have a knowledge base.
