This is also an excellent book for anyone who wants to learn to pray
the Rosary. The illustrations are beautiful and thoughtfully done.
The layout of the book was chosen carefully to help children and

Mysteries, rather than struggle to remember what comes next. Each
decade of the Rosary is laid out on two facing pages with the full
text of the Our Father, Hail Mary (once per decade), Glory Be, and
the Fatima Prayer included, so that while you or your children's
hearts are still learning these prayers you aren't distracted by the
need to recall them. The accompanying Scripture texts teach about
the Mysteries themselves and draw one deeper into prayer and
