Book Review: Sacred Scripture

Book Review: Sacred Scripture

I was surprised by a box in the mail the other day from the publisher, Our Sunday Visitor. In it were 4 books from their new Teeny Tiny Theology series. My toddler immediately reached for them, shouting “I want!,” so I think they hit the nail on the head in appealing to their target audience.   Let’s look at the Sacred Scripture book today.

Hold a flashlight to Light of the Saints by Cory Heimann, illustrated by Tricia Dugat, and holy attributes and images physically appear. It is wonderful!

Last week I hinted that my Light of Heaven Saints Coloring book had a larger story with it. Here is the rest of the story. When Our Sunday Visitor accepted my coloring book for publication, they sent along a question- would I be interested in doing a picture book version? I responded yes!

Behind the Pages- a peek at how a book came to be (this one was by me). This is the book that started it all for me. It started my journey as a Catholic author and illustrator, and I could not be more grateful to God for the way things worked out.
