Comments: Finally, a Catholic encyclopedia for children!
From the publisher:
Fascinating stories and captivating illustrations delight children as they
discover and explore the basics of the Catholic Church!
The great people and events of the Bible
The life and message of Jesus
The history of the early Church
Lives of the saints
Fundamental Catholic beliefs and practices
This kid-friendly resource is the ideal read-aloud text for kids in
kindergarten through second-grade. It's one that has third- and fourth-graders happily
proclaiming, "I can read it myself!"
Unlike most encyclopedias, the format is similar to a storybook, with
information presented in a topical style rather than alphabetically. Whether they're
listening or reading, youngsters will keep an eye out for "Icthus", the
friendly fish who acts as their guide throughout.
Parents, grandparents, and godparents: This is a perfect First Holy
Communion, Christmas, or birthday gift. Librarians, catechists, classroom, and
homeschool teachers: This is the solid, Catholic - entertaining! - resource you've
been looking for.
