Sent to welcome a new baby. It was a hit!
I have HOLY WEEK, PSALMS OF PRAISE and JESUS HEALS. As a volunteer leader in children's ministry I am always looking for resources and I LOVE to share books with children. I love the simple language and beautiful bright pictures and board books are so sturdy!
Holy Week is so beautiful for adults and children alike to reflect on the tumultuous mix of emotions surrounding the last week of Jesus' life as we re-live this to some extent each year. Children understand big emotions and it's so wonderful to know Jesus does too.
I love that Jesus Heals talks about healing while teaching about bodies, and Psalms of Praise is a great one to practice actions with.
An incredibly beautiful book. The gold embossing, the illustrations, the acknowledgement of such ordinary holiness is wonderful! I would say that some liturgies went on a little bit, but I liked that some of them also had shorter versions to choose from. I think I may annoy my friends when I show up with a liturgy for EVERY occasion, but hopefully in the long run they'll thank me 🤪.
Amidst all that is stress, this is truly a book that brings comfort. There are things that inspire thoughts and can often help not distract but dissect other pieces of the emotions felt.
This book of Psalms for young children is a beautiful collection of writings based on the Palms, and connects wonderfully with my preschooler. With his love of reading, I am thankful to be able to help him begin to explore the Psalms through this book.
