But more than that, Catholic Prayer Book for Children also puts in your child's hands the basics of the Catholic Faith: the Ten Commandments, Beatitudes, sacraments, corporal and spiritual works of mercy, gifts and fruits of the Holy Spirit, lives of the saints, and more.  With an age- appropriate "examination of conscience," and an introduction to the Mass and its major prayers, the Catholic Prayer Book for Children makes the perfect First Reconciliation or First Communion gift.  This is the keepsake your child will keep.

  Every Christian culture has given us touching legends and charming stories of the wondrous deeds of the Child Jesus. Many of these tales reveal to children the generous ways He helps them when they're unhappy or afflicted.

More than a century ago, A. Fowler Lutz collected the best of these legends. Although they spring from lands as various as France, Norway, and Greece, Germany, Syria, and China, these stories have many excellent things in common.

Each has the simplicity of goodness, and each is rich with the faith of ordinary people who aren't surprised by miracles. In these stories, they even seem to expect miracles!

The young heroes of these tales have a faith simpler than ours, and stronger. They know that Jesus is close to us, no matter how far away He may seem. They trust that He's walking with us every step of our way, no matter how steep and rocky our path may be.

That's the faith you'll find in these Stories of the Child Jesus from Many Lands,an innocent faith you can instill in your own little ones by reading aloud to them these sweet tales.
