Publishers Description This important new series of books is designed to show children ages 6-10 the Who, What, When, Where, Why, and How of traditional houses of worship, liturgical celebrations, and rituals of different world faiths, empowering them to respect and understand their own religious traditions -- and those of their friends and neighbors. Each full-color volume is ideal for orienting children within the faith -- and introducing young people from other faiths -- to what happens. Clergy and other experts of each tradition will author each volume, ensuring that these are valuable, authoritative resources as well as visual guides for younger-to-middle readers.
Colorful full-page photographs set the scene for the concise but informative descriptions of what is happening, the objects used, the clergy and laypeople who have specific roles, the spiritual intent of the believers, and more.
What You Will See Inside a Catholic Church will: -- Provide Catholic children with a deeper understanding of the practices of their own religious tradition. -- Give children the opportunity to ask questions, making them more active participants. -- Satisfy kids' curiosity about what goes on in churches attended by their friends, broadening awareness of other faiths at an important age when opinions and prejudices can first form.

Great man, great book. Jun 5, 2007
First of all I admit that I have a bias, because I know Father Mike personally and can't say enough about him. He has to be 1 of the most sweet and decent men I know. Hes also incredibly bright, funny, and down to earth. To know him is to love him.
When I look at the book objectively, it is excellent as I expected. It is good for anyone who doesn't have a clue about the Catholic church and wants something simple and clearcut to start with. It is excellent for children who are just getting to know Catholicism. The book is well illustrated with beautiful pictures. The only thing I didn't like is that there wasn't a biger pic of Father Mike :)
