Several years ago, Ignatius Press and Magnificat joined forces to launch a new line of beautifully illustrated, high quality, Catholic children’s books. These charming books have captured the imagination of children of various ages through delightful full-color illustrations, exciting stories from the Bible and lives of the saints, and simple yet powerful prayers. Due to the popularity if these books, three beautiful new titles have been added to the collection and are now available for purchase: Let’s Pray the Rosary, A Missal for Little Ones, and Catholic Saints for Children.
Since the Middle Ages, Christians have been praying the Rosary to grow close to Jesus and his Blessed Mother. In this colorfully illustrated book,Let’s Pray the Rosary, children ages 6 and up can learn the fascinating history of the Rosary and discover that this devotion has worked miracles and spread faith in every corner of the world.
The book explains how to pray the Rosary and tells the Biblical scenes of the mysteries in the Rosary, also providing the prayers that children and their families need to start praying the Rosary today. Lovely, four-color illustrations are featured on every page – this makes the perfect gift book for all occasions.
This simple missal, A Missal for Little Ones, allows a young child to follow the prayers and actions of the holy Mass step by step. The prayers and colorful illustrations show a boy and a girl at Mass, what they say and what they do, as well as the words and actions of the priest.
The mystery of Jesus, who died on the cross, rose from the dead, and opened the way to Heaven for us, is the essence of the holy Mass, which a child can enter into little by little with the help of this charming book. All the prayers children need for the holy Mass are included along with the colorful illustrations, which parents will find helpful in teaching children ages 3 and up about the beauty of the holy Mass.
At a time when our children desperately need authentic heroes, Catholic Saints for Children holds up well-known giants of our faith for young readers to be inspired by and imitate.
Simple, engaging texts highlight these saints’ fascinating lives. Accompanied by memorable watercolor illustrations, each delightful account models heroic love for God.
