Bright And Holy Kids — Older Children
Every time I read A Boy Who Became Pope, written and illustrated by Fabiola Garza, I get choked up. The life of this boy was more than touched by loss and grief; much more than I could imagine in my own life. But just as greatly, it was blessed by deep faith, courage, fortitude and the grand movements of God.
The book Brilliant! features 25 notable people in the sciences, mathematics, music & medicine who all have one thing in common common, they are Catholics!
This is a book overview rather than a review as I am the illustrator! But if I may say, it is a book worth sharing- even for the text alone. The Catholic Treasury of Prayers and Verses, compiled by Emmaus Road Publishing, is quite the comprehensive collection of the classic Catholic prayers, those you'd expect along with some treasures that may be new to you and your children.
