The Creation Story
In Words and Sign Language
John P. Audia; David Spohn, Illustrator

In The Creation Story, Deacon John P. Audia provides children with a simple version of the classic story of Creation illustrated in word and sign. Through engaging full-color images and rhyming verses he captures the attention of children, both deaf and hearing, and reminds them that God is living in them and that they are a special part of God’s creation. This story is a first step in helping children to understand that when God speaks we all can hear.

Why Me?
A new book by Julie Parker of Fenton, MO empowers children with special needs.

"It doesn't seem fair; it just can't be. Why is life so difficult for me?"

These words from the empathetic new children's book, "Why Me?" ring true for just about everyone. The book's simple message of acceptance and empowerment is the work of physical therapist and author Julie Parker of Fenton.

Parker grew up in Affton and Oakville, and is a 1991 graduate of Nerinx High School in Webster Groves. She has a congenital hand defect, and knows firsthand about growing up "different."

It's OK To Be Different
"Kids are curious," said Parker. "If they see someone who is different, they're going to ask questions." Parker said she was made fun of as a child, and felt singled out because of her hand.

"I work with special needs kids, and it's the most uplifting career," she said. "These kids don't think of themselves as disadvantaged. I don't hear 'woe is me.' If it hurts, they cry, then they move forward. I learn a lot about life by looking at them and the difficulties they face."

Parker sees a distinct advantage to teaching children at an early age that it's fine to be different, and to be curious about the differences in others. Her book, with its simple text and colorful illustrations (by her sister-in-law, Kelly Sieckhaus), is a valuable tool in that endeavor.

"If you look around, you'll be surprised to know that we all have things that challenge us as we grow," it reads.

"I don't think children have preconceived notions," said Parker. "We can teach them when they're little that it's OK to be different, it's OK to come out and ask questions, that it's not wrong to ask. But after you get the answer, accept that they're just like you and me."

Its mission, she said, is to help children of all abilities be healthy in mind and body.

Every Child A Light: The Pope's Message to Young People
By Blessed John Paul II
Blessed John Paul II's affinity for young people is well known. Here, Father Vereb has taken snippets from the pope's messages to children and teens and matched them with very appealing full-color photos: the pope holding, patting, and kissing babies and toddlers, and having a laugh or celebrating with older kids. The format is always accessible. The pages are bright white, and the text is given line by line, so it doesn't look intimidating. Despite all that, it's difficult to say if kids will pick up this book for themselves. Even though the excerpts are short, they are not always kid friendly: "It is above all in raising children that the family fulfills its mission to proclaim the gospel of life." Some of the pieces, however, are right at a child's level: "The pope has a great love for children! I want to see you grow up happy." An afterword tells readers more about Blessed John Paul II and his philosophy concerning children. Libraries with Catholic populations will probably want this on hand. Reading Level ages 9-12. Hardcover. 48 pages. (Item #88754) $16.95

This collection of 52 weekly reflections on living the Spirit invites young people to read and act on Blessed John Paul II's inspiring addresses to young people gathered at annual World Youth Day celebrations. Paperback (Item #83408) $7.95
