Reviews - What do customers think about The Imitation of Christ for Children: A Guide to Following Jesus?
Our children need this. Mar 29, 2007
This book is fantastic, and I highly recommend it to anyone who wants to encourage their children to follow Christ. It is well written, beautifully illustrated, and fun for the kids. I encourage parents to read the original Imitation of Christ as well.
A Incredible resource for families Feb 11, 2007
With her retelling of The Imitation of Christ by Thomas A Kempis, Elizabeth Ficocelli has brought the wonders of this wonderful spiritual classic to a new generation (and their parents!).
This is a well thought out, extremely well written synopsis of the main points of the original classic, encouraging families to live out the gift of the Eucharist by following Jesus and living lives as closely linked to His as possible. While the book is written in language that can be easily read and understood by young readers, this is a book that parents and teachers will enjoy sharing with their children and students.
The book also contains a "study guide" for adults using the book with children. Relevant activity and project ideas are included for each of the books' chapters.
