Not my favorite book, but I've found myself considering it many years after I read it.
I think this book should be read by EVERY parent or parent-to-be. It's a wonderful example of what can happen when children are exposed to all religions, with no editorialization about where they should hang their hat.
It's important to have a code of ethics. But just pick one code - whatever one (whatever religion) and raise the child in that. Then let he or she find their own way from there. An important lesson from this book.
