I'm looking for a storybook that would have the "stories" from several different religions. Ideally, it would be one that would be worded for children, but would contain tales from Christianity, Judaism, Muslim, Vedic, and other scriptures. Does such a book exist? I would like my children to know scriptural stories (as an aspect of cultural literature), but not necessarily "preachy" books.

Is that clear as mud? :LOL

Well here is one of prayers/verse that's kind of neat, but I know you are looking for stories.

"One Earth, One Spirit: A Child's Book of Prayers from Many Faiths and Cultures" by Tess Strickland

I'll post anything else I find

OK, leapfrogging off your Tess Strickland suggestion...Google found this linky for A World of Beliefs. Bonanza!

And in the collection is Sacred Myths: Stories of World Religions. Check out the table of contents (two pages)

Will keep digging. Would love to find one for preschoolers.
