Hi all!

First off, I'm a total book nerd, and I'm always at the library for new atheist titles, docs, and also books for my children.

I thought it would be a good idea to start reading books about mythology to my kids. They love fairy tales, so it's pretty much the same thing. :)

Many of you are probably already familiar with the DK children's book series. They have tons of titles about countless subjects. I found their mythology book and was pleasently surprised to see they added all current religions to other ancient myths. Their page on the creation stories has a Native American view of the world being born on the shell of a turtle right next to a depiction of Adam and Eve.

I thought it was a great resource when introducing children to different beliefs. Here's the link: http://us.dk.com/nf/Book/BookDisplay/0,,9780756660369,00.html?strSr...#

 

as a side note, this book is suited for about 5 years and older.

Will totally look for that. My son (6) loves the eyewitness books!  Thanks for the tip.  

 

Just as an addendum - my son really enjoyed Pyramids - and it had great activities that make you think about morality - moral government and things like that - it is an exploration of ancient egypt- review here: http://sumogirl.com/sumomambo/index.php?option=com_content&task... 

Thanks Jennifer! I'm always on the look out for books for me or my kids :)
