Sophia Press has done it again, providing wonderful books for kids this Christmas season. Check out this selection of three books kids of all ages will love!
This coloring book by Anna Maria Mendell will be a joy for all kids who love coloring. Volume 1, which covers January-June, features a saint a day with a brief kid-friendly biography of the saint and the opposite page contains an easy to color illustration of the saint by Mary MacArthur.
While it may seem irrational for adults to understand why children fear different situations, The Seed Who Was Afraid to Be Planted by Anthony DeStefano does a wonderful job simplifying to children how to face their fears and trust in God. Illustrated by Erwin Madrid, the story builds as the seed is afraid to realizing its full potential as a beautiful tree that bears good fruit. Parents will be able to then explain to their children how their fear of whatever can grow into something wonderful if they trust that God knows what is best for them.
Every child needs a Christmas story, and this one is the one to treasure. Written by Thomas D. Williams, the story is complete starting with the promise and annunciation to the birth of Christ and how we continue to celebrate it today. The illustrations by Frank Fraser are fun and engaging. There is a lot to take in on each page, and parents can go deeper into the story by explaining what is happening in the images.
“Glory be to God in the Highest!” These children’s books will be a wonderful addition to any children’s library and will be used and read over and over again.
