Perfect for toddlers and PreK children Jun 19, 2007
This little gem of a book will give you tiny lessons to share with your children so they learn how to behave at Mass. A companion to "Just Like Mary" your children will want you to read this one over and over as they learn to love Christ present in the Mass.
Wonderful Resource Feb 3, 2007
I already had Little Acts of Grace and Just Like Mary, both lovely little books, so I was surprised by the previous reviewer's rating and opinion of the illustrations. I recieved my own copy yesterday, and it is just as wonderful as the other two. The lessons are all "bite-sized" for little learners, and the illustrations are beautiful, even the one in question. There is no look of fear or apprehension on the angels faces, only sadness, which we should all feel at that moment! For helping to teach preschoolers about our Catholic faith, these books are absolutely charming, and you shouldn't hesitate at all in buying them.
Always preview before buying! Jan 22, 2007
I had not seen this book before, but was familiar with the illustrator's work on the Little Acts of Grace book. The text of this book is very nice, but a bit wordy in places, however,I was extremely disappointed with the illustration on page 35. It shows Jesus on the cross with blood pouring out from his wrists going into cups being held by two little angels. The expression on the one angel's face is one of apprehension and almost fear like. It is totally too graphic and disturbing and I will not use this book with my students because of it. Too bad to have just one illustration ruin the whole book.
A Gem!! Feb 27, 2006
I have purchased this book for my children, godchildren, and First Communion Class students! It is so wonderful to find a book that teaches children the truths of our Catholic Faith in a way that is simple yet eloquent. This book does not water down our Faith or dumb it down... The children love it.
