I am always looking for great literature for our children and to add to our homeschooling collection. Counting on Faith, written by Maurice Prater and illustrated by Jason Koltuniak, is definitely a fantastic addition to our home library that we will treasure for years to come.
I feel like a lot of religious counting books are aimed at toddlers or young preschoolers who are just learning to count. These are great and fun books, but for those of us who are looking for something more, Counting on Faith is it! This book is perfect for someone who is not learning to count, but who is learning about the Catholic Faith. It helps teach the basics of the Holy Family, the Days of Creation, Jesus's Death, the Gifts of the Holy Spirit, important prayers like the Our Father, the Guardian Angels and the Ten Commandments.
Beyond these important Catholic topics, the other part of this book that we loved is the illustrations. They are truly captivating and draw you into each page. As a homeschool parent, I also love that at the end of the book they include spiritual references to where each topic is discussed in the Bible and also definitions of words that might be new to younger children.
We truly enjoyed this book and know that it will not only help us with counting but also drawing closer to the beauty of our Catholic Faith!
