 Everyone Prays: Celebrating Faith Around the World by Alex York Lumbard and illustrated by Alireza Sadeghian (Wisdom Tales, 2014) shows people from religions around the world praying. Simple drawings are accompanied by a very basic text that describes how people from different religions pray: heads covered or not, singing and dancing or not, with water or not. The illustrations truly do illustrate people from all of the world, of all faiths. The last page of the book gives factual information about some of the religions mentioned. While the text is not all that engaging, combined with the drawings this is a fascinating peek into religions of the world for the youngest readers. Digital review copy from the publisher.
