Dd is about to start a very churchy C of E school and I'd like to arm myself with some age-appropriate stuff on other religions to dilute the influence and broaden her outlook. I want her to understand that there are many different religious views.

Any recommendations? Islam, Hinduism, Judaism, Ba'hai - the more the merrier!

That is encorouging - but I just get a queasy feeling when I see all the stuff on the walls which is ENTIRELY xian-related. This is not an issue I'm comfortable leaving to the school.

We have a nice book called All Kinds of Beliefs which I got for just this reason when DD was in reception. It doesn't include atheists as a group unfortunately, but I would say a good starting point for discussion.
