Five Star Review
But don’t take our word for it. Here’s what others are saying!
“I learned so much from this book. The photographs are stunning….I especially appreciated being given the proper pronunciation of the many unfamiliar words and phrases she introduces in her work. This
book could play an important role in helping promote an understanding of different cultures, belief systems, and sacred spaces. It’s a marvelous book and well worth reading for children and their caregivers alike. We All Have Sacred Spaces is most highly recommended.” [Read full review here]
Midwest Book Review
“Profusely illustrated throughout with full color photography, “We All Have Sacred Spaces” is impressively informative and thoroughly ‘kid friendly’ in organization and presentation, making it an ideal and unreservedly recommended addition to family, daycare center, preschool, Sunday school, elementary school, and community library collections.”

“We All Have Sacred Spaces is a remarkable achievement – a beautifully-documented resource surveying seven major religious traditions for children! Full of engaging queries, magnificent images, and important information (with pronunciation clues), this book will also captivate the adult reader. A must-have for anyone interested in interfaith education for children.”
Author, The Interfaith Family Journal, Susan Katz Miller
