Easter Bunny's Amazing Day
From the heart of two St. Louis sisters, comes a new story of the very first Easter Bunny. Easter Bunny’s Amazing Day introduces young children everywhere to a fearful bunny who has an amazing experience on the first Easter morning that changes him forever. In his own words, the Bunny shares his story; a tale of action, adventure, miracles and great love—all beautifully illustrated by Saint Louis artist, Jonathan Sundy.

The response to the tale so far has been remarkable. As it turns out- this book is appealing to the heart of the child of any age. Adults are saying, “I never teared up before reading a children’s book.” A mother writes, “My children were immediately drawn into this story by the beautiful and endearing illustrations. This narrative is a wonderful way to communicate the religious meaning of Easter through our cultural idea of the Easter Bunny. It will be a favorite in our house for years to come!” An older man with some dementia is now reading the book two to three times a day because it calms him. Pre-school and elementary teachers love the book themselves and are grateful to finally have this unique story of the first Easter that includes everyone’s favorite bunny. Even a ten year old boy commented, “This is a good book.”

First time authors, Carol Benoist and Cathy Gilmore are delighted! They set out to write a simple story, but they just might be transforming the way that young children experience Easter. For every child who is stuffing his or her cheeks with jelly beans and chocolate bunny ears, it’s as if the sisters lean in to whisper, “But wait, there’s more…” Easter Bunny’s Amazing Day is a gift to us all.

Our Holy Father, The Pope

by Don R. Caffery

Who was the first pope? Who is the pope today? What does he do? And why do we need one anyway? The answers to these questions and more can be found in this beautifully illustrated book for children.Our Holy Father, the Pope takes us back to the time of Jesus so that we can learn about the origins and role of the Papacy.

The storybook format begins with the Gospels: Jesus calling Simon, Jesus renaming him Peter, meaning "rock", and giving him the keys to the kingdom, and so on. It follows Peter as Jesus suffers, dies, and rises from the dead for all mankind. The descent of the Holy Spirit, the birth of the Church, and the death of Peter himself for the sake of Jesus also are described.

The Church carries on with a new leader to replace Peter, as she has down through the centuries to our own day. As children will learn from this book, although the Church has adapted to the times, the tasks of our modern popes are not that different from those of Peter.

The book includes brief biographies of some famous popes, a list of all the popes from Peter to the present, and a bibliography. 

Includes beautiful and inspiring illustrations by renowned French illustrator Emmanuel Beaudesson.

Beginnings
by Lori Ann Watson

In your beginning—yes, in your beginning,
God thought of you, and he loved you.
A tiny seed grows into a majestic tree. A small caterpillar flutters from the cocoon as a beautiful butterfly. A fragile egg cradles the new life of a baby robin. And a much-loved child is nurtured within a mother’s womb.

Beginnings is a fresh new way to teach children about the value of life at every stage. Gorgeous illustrations take little ones through all of the wondrous beginnings of God’s creations—a seed becomes a pine tree, a yellow blossom becomes a tomato, a spring becomes a river. Beginnings emphasizes the value of human life by reassuring children that God has loved them all along, from the very beginning.  (Item #82359) $12.95

The Book of Saints & Heroes
The first Christians to visit Europe and the British Isles met pagans who told tales of fairies, talking beasts, and other wonderful things. To these marvelous stories, they soon added new ones about the Christian saints. Some were true, others improbable, and many simply fantastic. In the ones we include here, you’ll meet the saint who spent seven Easters on a whale’s back and the amiable lion who was St. Jerome’s friend. You’ll see St. George fight the dragon, and you’ll read about the fierce wolf St. Francis of Assisi converted.

But many of these stories have in them scarcely a wave of the fairy wand. So you’ll also find here true tales of great saints such as St. Louis of France, St. Vincent de Paul, St. Francis Xavier, and St. Elizabeth of Hungary — souls marked by courage, kindness, and piety.

These marvelous legends and exciting true stories of Christian saints and heroes will provide many hours of delightful reading to believers and non-believers alike! 336 pages (Item #97816) $24.95

  • St. Anthony

    This Little Light
    Lessons in Living from Sister Thea Bowman

    by Michael O'Neill McGrath

    A moving and joyous celebration of Sister Thea Bowman, her vision for the church, and her model of humanity.

    Sister Thea Bowman (1937-1980), an African-American Franciscan, is one of the great treasures of the American Catholic church. Through her integration of Catholic tradition and black pride she serves as a beacon for a church that celebrates diversity, inclusiveness, and love for all God's children. Through her ministry of public speaking she touched countless people, bearing a message of faith and hope rooted in the Gospels and the wisdom of the Spirituals. Through her final ordeal with cancer she offered an inspiring example of what it means to be ?fully alive,? and to ?live until one dies.?

    Mickey McGrath is among the many whose life was changed by her witness and story. Inspired by her message that God wants each of one of us to let our little light shine he found his own vocation as a religious artist. Here, through a series of 12 stunning paintings and his reflections on her life and teaching, McGrath celebrates the spirit of one of the great prophets and spiritual guides of our time. It is a message that makes one rejoice in life and say Amen!
    Brother Michael O'Neill McGrath, an Oblate of St. Francis de Sales, is an artist, writer, and popular speaker. His work has been featured in many books, including Women of Mercy, Blessed Art Thou, and Patrons and Protectors. He lives in Philadelphia. 96 pages, hardcover.

    The Cure of Ars
    by Milton Lomask
    Milton Lomask contributes his second volume to the Vision Books series of saints for youth 9 - 15 years old in this story of the greatly beloved Curé of Ars. Jean-Marie Vianney, a farm boy born during the French Revolution, longed to become a priest. But he could not learn Latin, and it seemed as if the humble, lovable, slow-thinking Jean-Marie would never be ordained. He did at last become a priest, and such a holy one that St. Jean-Marie Vianney is invoked as the patron saint and model of parish priests everywhere. To many he is known, not by name, but simply as "the Curé of Ars," the parish priest who devoted his life to the little village of Ars and so successfully led his people to sanctity that he became a prime target of the devil.

    When a poor devout widow begs for a scrap of bread from a rich faithless baker, she promises to participate in the king’s wedding mass as payment for the baker’s generosity. The baker writes "One Mass" on a scrap of paper and places it on his scale to determine how much bread it is worth. To his and the entire town’s surprise, nothing in the shop, not even the gigantic wedding cakes made for the king, outweighs the simple piece of paper representing the true worth of a mass. Luminous old-world watercolor paintings grace the interior of the book and gold foil artwork lends an air of solemnity and sacred beauty to the story.

    Jesus Loves Me Board Book
    by Joni Walker
    This board book for very young children introduces them to some of God's other children and points out the differences among them. It gently encourages the young child to look beyond his immediate environment and known world and to discover more of God's creation. It also clearly identifies Jesus as Savior, who died and rose again on Easter as our Redeemer.

    Developed for children ages 1 to 4, this book depicts scenes and people from everyday life that will show the young reader God's wonderful creativity. The illustrations show a variety of children; the text explains that all people are created by God and that Jesus came as their Savior. Each page states a biblical truth in simple, child-friendly language and illustrates it by showing things young children will recognize and understand. This will help toddlers begin to individuate--that is, to begin to see themselves and others as separate and unique. By so doing, "Jesus Loves Me" teaches the young child to appreciate God's beautiful and varied creation and to comprehend the presence and power of Jesus in their lives.

    This book will use an art style that is pleasing to very young children, but will incorporate it along with age-specific text to communicate the significance of Jesus’ saving work in the lives of God’s forgiven and redeemed children. (Item #81273) $5.99

A total of 25 activities includes favorite formats like dot-to-dot, coloring, decoding, rebuses, drawing, crossword puzzle, crafts, and more.

    "Fill and Feel": Create a rosary with a pencil on the illustration provided, then "feel the beads" by lightly touching the backside of the page.
    "A-maze-ing Faith": A three-way maze connects our hearts to God and our actions to love.

What better time than October, as All Saints Day approaches, to familiarize children with 13 of the Church’s most honored heroes? Each life story highlights a particular virtue that saint possessed, and relates the virtue to a child's life today.

    God's Heroes is arranged in an easy-to-follow format, with information about a saint's life and work on the left and a fun activity on the right to reinforce the learning. Of the 13 saints featured, most will be familiar to children. A few may be new, which offers children the chance to get to know other great heroes, and maybe pick a new favorite!
    The 13 saints include:
    St. Francis of Assisi Blessed Kateri Tekakwitha
    St. Clare of Assisi St. Philip Neri
    St. Joan of Arc St. Edward the Confessor

    Celebrate with Jesus
    A Child's Book of the Sacraments

    The newest book in this popular series introduces each sacrament to young children with a story in the life of Jesus. Key words for each sacrament help children understand and remember the main emphasis of these celebrations of life and sources of grace within the Church.

    As always, engaging activities help children “heart-learn” as well as “head-learn.” A symbol for each sacrament is used to provide an instant visual reminder.

    In addition to learning about the sacraments, children will also become familiar with common sacramentals, such as palms, the rosary, and holy water. The sacredness of daily activities is presented as well, to reassure that the sacraments are not our only means of grace.

    Welcome Children!
    A Child's
    Mass Book
    Here's a fun, reverent and educational way to help children celebrate the Eucharist. Activities to develop understanding of the Mass are arranged in an easy-to-follow sequence that parallels the progression of the Mass. As Jesus opens the door to invite children in, an activity identifying what they see - altar, tabernacle, candles, crucifix - immediately helps them become familiar with the worship space.

    Special faith-building features include mass responses (up-to-date and indicated in red); simple icons that show when to sit, stand, kneel; illustrations of traditional gestures and postures; 16 activities that explain the parts of the Mass.

    With activities on the left-hand pages and Mass prayers on the right, parents can easily help children find their place with little interruption of their own prayer experience. Once complete, the book becomes a personal keepsake to use week after week. Welcome, Children! can help prepare children for First Eucharist - or reinforce participation at Mass for those who already receive Communion. It's a great resource for RCIA too!

    Sacred Stories
    A Child's Bible Book

    Introduce young children to some of our most treasured Bible stories in a way that captures their attention and helps them grow in understanding of how their faith began. Each story, drawn from both the Old and New Testaments, is followed by an activity that further explains the story or its significance.

    Sacred Stories is arranged in an easy-to-follow format with each story on the left and the activity on the right. Stories preserve the dignity of the original text and convey a healthy, loving image of God. Activities nurture spirituality and develop understanding that faith is a relationship that never stops growing.

    The 17 stories, selected to represent a comprehensive view of the Bible, include "God Creates the World," "God Frees the Jewish  People," "The Ten Commandments," "Proverbs Are Words of Advice," "Jesus Is Baptized," "Jesus Heals a Blind Man," "Jesus Appears to Mary Magdalene," and more.
