Bright And Holy Kids — Saints
Now for something a little bit different! Instead of a book review today, I thought a book preview would be fun. Women Doctors of the Church is due for publication in 2022, from Our Sunday Visitor, by author Colleen Pressprich. I am the illustrator.
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.
Meghan Bausch wrote and illustrated Saintly Rhymes for Modern Times, and I could tell that great care was taken with the lovely little rhymes that accompany each saint, blessed or venerable person. She was able to capture the essence of each of their earthly lives in two short, rhyming paragraphs- an impressive feat!
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.
