Of the thousands of colouring books available for children, only a few deal with religion, tending to depict only one religion. This colouring book is unique in bringing together the most widespread faiths: Islam, Christianity, Judaism, Hinduism, Buddhism and Sikhism.
Making young children familiar with some very basic knowledge about those religions on an egalitarian level, such as symbols and places of worship creates a basis to encourage religious tolerance and respect for common values.
The concept of this small multilingual booklet is to link children’s natural passion for drawing and puzzles with a positive educational experience. The motto therefore is “Have fun learning about the world‘s major religions with these creative designs and simple challenges!”
The first edition includes the languages: English, German, Spanish and Swahili.
The second edition includes: English, Arabic, French, Chinese.
Both versions are available as a hard copy through BARAZA or as download for self printing.
All content was developped by BARAZA in cooperation with graphic designer Barbara Wolff and under the guidance of Riaz Ravat, vice-director of St Philip‘s Centre, UK which is a partner to the project “Oman’s Message of Islam.” The print of the first edition was supported by MARK Tours LLC, Muscat, Sultanate of Oman. The second edition was supported by the Association of Master Chin Kung Friends at UNESCO for Peace and Harmony Development (PAHD).
We would be happy to see the booklet to be spread around the world and used in schools or other educational instutions as well as at home for fun!
