Good for multiple ages May 28, 2008
I bought this book 1-2 years ago for my godson, who is almost 6. It took him a while, but he loves it. I am now buying a second book b/c his sister, who is 3, also loves it, and they argue over the book during mass. :) They both like it a lot. I like it b/c it shows people of all different ages, races, and abilities attending mass.
Good for 1st graders Apr 23, 2008
I used this book in addition to the textbook for my first grade PSR (CCD) class this year and then sent it on to my kindergarten aged granddaughter. This is a well written book for children with delightful illustrations. It doesn't go into the why but that is something that can be added by parents or teachers. I found the book most helpful and recommend it for both home and PSR use.
Just right for young children Feb 7, 2007
I liked this book because the pictures and writing reflect the experiences today's children will have at Mass. All the different parts of Mass are covered and explained clearly and simply. The illustrations are attractive and comparable to well-produced picturebooks, unlike some earlier unprofessional Catholic publications.
Modernist tale of the New Mass Jun 12, 2006
Don't waste your money on this ultra-modern look at the Mass from 1970 onward. The felt banners on the cover should give you a clue as to what the author thinks is an devout and reverant liturgy.
