  • A Child's Missal (Hardcover)
    by Patmos
    ISBN: 0974174815
    This Child’s Missal takes an unusual approach to bringing children and parents alike into the mysteries of the Mass. In a harmonious mix of artwork, photos, Scripture, and text, it presents the story of how Christ’s life and the Mass are one. Going beyond the obvious connections of the Mass with the Last Supper and the Crucifixion, it shows how the rich symbolism of the Mass touches upon the rest of Christ’s life. Soon enough we realize how far reaching were Christ’s words when he said of the Mass, "Do this in memory of me".

    Lofty though the ideas are, the story is told quite simply. The beautiful artwork is inspired by the best of Catholic icon tradition but re-created in a child-friendly style. The photographs from the Mass blend seamlessly with this art to create an integrated expression of what is being remembered in the Mass with what is being done.

    Throughout the book, a guardian angel appears who guides a boy (called "Adam") and teaches him about the Mass. The text that accompanies the angel is filled with explanations and good advice addressed to the boy "Adam" and to each child reading or being read to.

    This durable, hardbound Missal also makes a worthy catechism. It is highly visual, richly theological, and poetically beautiful. It will open the eyes of any child of God to the mysterious and wondrous reality of Christ’s life in the Mass.

Under Decker's hand, "Three Blind Mice" becomes "Three Kind Mice":

    Three kind mice,
    See what they've done!
    They helped a lost chick
    To find Mother Hen,
    They brought some food
    To the church mice, then
    They cleaned up the tree house
    For Jenny Wren,
    Those three kind mice.

    The rewritten verses will not overwhelm anyone with their poetic brilliance, but they serve their purpose. Illustrator Sarah Gibb paints the kind of quiet, old-fashioned watercolors that readers will always remember. (Ages 3 to 7) --Emilie Coulter

    Aileen Fisher's informative, well-organized text describes Jesus' crucifixion and resurrection, then moves on to explain the origins of other springtime rituals and their connection to the biblical traditions. Basic facts about the history of Easter, Passover, the Easter Bunny, Easter eggs, and other forms of religious and secular symbolism are lucidly conveyed, without going into excessive detail. The emphasis is on the symbolism of new life and new hope in the hearts of people, whether in Christian celebrations or in spring festivals. As Fisher says, "Not all Christian churches celebrate the Easter season in the same way. But the message of Easter is always the same. It is the joy and celebration of the belief that God's love is stronger than death." The author includes instructions on decorating Easter eggs, as well as a recipe for the traditional Easter-morning treat, hot cross buns. First published in 1968, this gorgeous new edition is illustrated by Stefano Vitale, who decorates each page as carefully and exquisitely as if it were a precious Easter egg. Lush yet muted earth tones and a folk-art slant to the paintings set this apart as a truly special Easter book. (Ages 6 to 10) --Emilie Coulter

  • You Are Mine and If Only I Had a Green Nose (Wemmicks Collection)
    by Max Lucado, Sergio Martinez (Illustrator)
    ISBN: 1581348053
    Bigger, better, and more is how the world determines who is special and who is not. It’s a message kids hear every day. But it’s not God’s message.

    Just like Punchinello, we all want to fit in—to be accepted by the crowd. But at times that may mean either looking and acting like others or risking being rejected.

    God’s truth is simple and unchanging, reminding us that it’s not what we have that counts, but whose we are. This is a truth the lovable Wemmick, Punchinello, hears again at the knee of Eli, his creator.

    Punchinello’s hard-learned lessons show us how important it is to be who we were created to be, and why that matters. Let the two wonderful tales You Are Mine and If Only I Had a Green Nose—as 2 Books in 1—help you remember these important things: you were made the way you are for a reason, and there is Someone who will always help you be you—wonderfully you.
  • You Are Special
    by Max Lucado, Sergio Martinez
    ISBN: 0891079319
    Every day Wemmicks do the same thing: either stick gold stars or gray dots on one another. The pretty and talented ones always get stars. Others, though, who can do little or who have chipped paint, get ugly dots. Kids will love seeing how Eli the woodcarver helps Punchinello understand how special he is--dots and all. Parents will appreciate the message this story sends to kids: that regardless of what the world thinks, they are precious in God's sight.
  • You Are Special and Best of All (Wemmicks Collection)
    by Max Lucado, Sergio Martinez (Illustrator)
    ISBN: 1581348045
    In You Are Special and Best of All, the Wemmicks do many of the same things we do. Unfortunately, just like us, they sometimes judge and label one another, often hurting those whom they see as unpopular or less than perfect. It is Eli the Maker who helps Punchinello understand how special he is, no matter what others may think.

    In these heartwarming children’s tales—in a special 2 Books in 1 edition—from best-selling author Max Lucado and illustrator Sergio Martinez, we see that it is God who made us the way we are. He did so on purpose and we don’t have to be famous in order to be special. Both messages are vital for children everywhere: that regardless of how the world evaluates them, God cherishes each of them, just as they are.
  • Your Special Gift
    by Max Lucado, David Wenzel (Illustrator)
    ISBN: 1581346980
    One morning the people of Wemmicksville wake up to discover that they’ve all received gifts. Punchinello opens his gift to find a hammer; Lucia receives a paintbrush and set of paints; and Hans, the baker, gets a spoon. Nobody knows who sent the gifts, but each Wemmick receives the perfect gift: Punchinello likes to build, Lucia loves to paint, and Hans enjoys cooking.

    When a family of Wemmicks needs help to reach Eli the woodcarver, Punchinello and his friends try to come to their aid. Unfortunately, nothing they do seems to work. Only when they realize that Eli gave them each a special gift are they able to use those gifts to make a difference.

    This story will show kids how God has given them a special gift they can use to serve Him.
