About the Book

A fly, a bee, a hare, a bear, a mouse and a deer are holding their third meeting to discuss the six largest major world religions. A little elephant is listening to the discussion and finds the comparison very interesting remembering some of his experiences with religion in India. Every animal has a preference and gives the reasons for it. But the elephant and the mouse have a different opinion and are very happy to be interested in all religions. At the end everyone is glad that their life is so simple and there seem to be no boundaries for them as long as they act responsibly. Comments by readers: This book is very apt and informative for children who are curious about religion and compare them in a positive light. It is a great message presented by animals in a lovely setting. A simple presentation of lots of interesting information.
