st_john_vianney_ess

The Encounter the Saint Series that Pauline Books and Media publishes is a fantastic resource on the saints that my children love. The series has grown to over 30 plus volumes.

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.

Children are given their first missal to help guide them through the actions of the Mass, but what’s missing in these little guides is a true understanding of the Mass. Children have to be taught how to fully participate in this Holy Sacrifice. Jesus Speaks to Me about the Mass by Angela M. Burrin is a wonderful children’s book to help parents in this very important task. With this book … [Read more...]

Kids Corner Review – My First Missal

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...]
