Beautiful way to show our universal church!
This book is beautifully written and illustrated. I bought 4 copies to gift even before Sophia Press was publishing them. We received it as a birthday gift for our 1 year old, but I love the opportunity for discussion with my 4 year old the articles and parts of the mass. I love that it presents different types of churches (chapel, shrine, parish, cathedral) as well as showing different ways to receive Jesus (on the tongue, in the hand and to receive a blessing). While our family prefers to receive on the tongue, I would rather discuss the difference of how others might receive in the hand when it's not in the moment at mass. The girl who is "holding a chalice" referenced by the other reviewer is veiled and reverently doing so because she is receiving the precious blood for communion. Thank you for the gift this book is to so many!

Great concept, beautiful book, description should include a "WARNING"
Thank you to the author and the illustrator for making a beautiful and sturdy little book for our Catholic little ones to read / beat up on. The photos and watercolors are printed vividly to great effect. The reason why I cannot recommend, however, is the inclusion of a photo of a young girl with the chalice in her hands! There is also a photo of an un-veiled girl approaching to receive with outstretched hands. So we ended up with a beautiful book that we cannot share with our little ones. I am disappointed, because I thought I could count on Sophia to be a little more discerning.
