stout_hearts

As you know, this blog is about Catholic books; however, this particular review is a children’s book written by a Catholic author. Although, the story itself is not “Catholic”, the author is. I stumbled upon this book and the author, Daniel McInerny, while at a Catholic Homeschool Conference earlier this summer. He gave a great talk on the importance of literature. My tween and teenager fell in love with this book, as well as, my wife, Laura!! So here is the review put together by my oldest daugh … [Read more...]

Brilliant. That is the one word that comes to mind to describe Clare's Costly Cookie: A Young Heart Discovers the Way of Love by Julie Kelly and illustrated by Mary MacArthur.

Kids Corner Review – My First Missal

My First Missal published by Pauline Books and Media and written by  Maria Grace Dateno is a wonderful little missal for young child to follow along with the Holy Mass.  Not only does this book include the exact words of the updated current Mass, but it also includes a brief explanation of each part of the Mass.   It was particularly helpful for my daughter in preparing for her First Reconciliation and First Communion.  I especially like that it includes a prayer for children to say after they re … [Read more...]

Kids Corner Review – Can You Find Saints?

can_you_find_saints

Laura is back with another review for the Kids Corner.My kids love “Look and Find” books. They are usually fighting over them and when one of my children does sit down to look this type of book over, the other one is peering over their shoulder trying to find everything first! So I was very excited when I discovered the “Search and Learn” book Can You Find Saints?: Introducing Your Child to Holy Men and Women by Philip D. Gallery and illustrated by Janet L. Harlow. It’s not quite as tall as m … [Read more...]
