Description
 

Teach your children how to pray--through this enchanting book!

Our Anna, Therese, and Lillian LOVE this book! There is no better story for teaching how to pray to Jesus as your best friend.

Nine year old Clare, in her inimitable way, models for children that following Jesus Christ and striving for true holiness are worth any cost. With spirit and spunk she demonstrates for young readers that living the holy Catholic faith is not only exciting, but better than gooey, warm chocolate chip cookies.

An insight into the mind of a 9 year old February 10, 2015
Reviewer: Dadof4GirlsBlessedAmongWomen from Westminster, CO United States  
Sometimes its hard to know what is going on inside another person's head.  God is at work there more than we know.  Children will love it.  Parents will gain a new understanding that helps them appreciate God's hidden work in the hearts and minds of our youth.  This book might remind you of some of your own prayers when you were young.

great little book June 16, 2014
Reviewer: Meghan Kuhn from Los Alamitos, CA United States  
I love the short but very full chapters. My kids (5, 3 &1) and I have been reading one each night. I plan to read it again as we journey toward 1st communion.

great book March 31, 2014
Reviewer: Anonymous Person from Alpharetta, GA United States  
My 5 year old boy relates very well to Clare. She is quite insightful for a little girl. As I've been reading this book to him, he has been gaining a better understanding of prayer. Thank you for the recommendation, Holy Heroes!

Great guide to prayer September 10, 2013
Reviewer: Anna from United States  
I was expecting this book to be a novel of sorts, but it's less a connected story and more a series of everyday incidents in Clare's life that she brings to prayer.  I'm using it as part of First Confession/Communion prep for my daughter and she really likes it.  It's a gentle introduction to prayer as a relationship with Jesus, rather than just a formal thing to do at set times with the family.

It's so funny! (Therese, 4 years old) July 12, 2013
Reviewer: Mitzi S from San Jose, CA United States  
My four year old enjoyed hearing Clare's "adventures". The themes of each chapter are common scenarios that kids find themselves in. The dialogue with Jesus that Clare carries on gives my daughter insights into what could be a better approach to disagreements, fights, etc without it becoming "preachy", since it doesn't come from Mama but a fellow child. Looking forward to the next installation!
