Amy Cattapan interviews Cathy Gilmore about the latest book in her Tiny Virtue Heroes series for children.
"Cath-Lit Live!" features brief interviews with Catholic authors who are releasing new books. Hosted by Catholic author and speaker Amy J. Cattapan, "Cath-Lit Live!" gives viewers a glimpse into the latest Catholic books while getting to know a bit about the author as well.
The latest storybook in Cathy Gilmore’s Tiny Virtue Heroes series is now available! Parents will be delighted to meet the newest “character who empowers character in kids”! Buzzin’ About Cousins tells the story of Mary and Elizabeth at the Visitation and the life of John as a little child. Just like the rest of the books in the TVH series for kids 3-8, Buzzin’ About Cousins helps children imagine one of the Mysteries of the Rosary and helps them be inspired to think and pray, do and say … virtue. The story is told from the perspective of a lovable animal or insect, this time a honeybee named Devoree. She highlights the virtue of inspiration, in which we energize the faith, virtue or enthusiasm of others. The illustrations by Jeanie Egolf, creator of the adorable Molly Mc Bride series, are sweet and fun. The art supports a continuing pro-life theme in these books also! Visit VirtueHeroes.com to see all Cathy’s books, characters, and virtue resources.
