If you don’t know this book, you should. It’s DELIGHTFUL. Marigold Hunt wrote Life of Our Lord for Children. This one is a great series of Bible stories about angels. My kids ADORE IT.
It’s no joke, though. It will take you weeks to get through.
You can get these for $4 on Amazon. There’s four or five of them, or you can get the 400 page Treasury of them. It’s cheap too!
It reads like a STORY, not a catechism or St. Joseph Picture book. My kids all gather round to hear about confession. YAY.
The below book is one of my favorite authors. Driscoll’s words really work for us, but we’re not sure about the illustration in this one.
There’s something with the eye focus that makes her look blind in several pictures. But, like I said, the words are GREAT.
Below is one of two fun Patrick stories that are 2-3 day chapter books. They’re not long like Marigold Hunt or Houselander, but they will take a few days. Bit longer than a D’aulaire, not as long as a skinny Windeatt.
This first one by Janda was really easy to find on Abebooks.com. It’s got pretty involved black and white illustrations.
The one by Driscoll, who did the Therese book, is fun too.
The illustrations are simple and glance-worthy, not as involved as the Janda book, but we still like the words a lot. I think we’d be a fan of anything he wrote. He handles sad stuff in a way that we can take.
