Booklist - Sarah Hunter

"Though each culture’s practices are given relatively short shrift...the broad scope is rather impressive and should pique the interest of students beginning to research religion and culture. A craft project is a nice addition to the standard back matter." - Booklist

Booklist - Kathleen McBroom

"...[students] will appreciate the well-organized layout, the site accessibility and navigability, and the satisfyingly gory full-color illustrations (these vivid photo-like images are so lifelike that they might cause confusion regarding actual representations). This teaching and learning tool would be a worthwhile supplemental addition to public, school, and classroom collections. There are multiple curriculum connections, and audience demand for this subject remains steadfast." - Booklist
