Description
 

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

Our Anna, Therese, Lillian, and Caroline 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.

5 of 5 Wonderful Book! April 22, 2020
Reviewer: Anonymous Person  
I've read this with my eldest daughter twice now, once when she was 4 1/2 and again when she was almost 6. I'm sure we will read it again soon, this time with her younger sister who will soon be 4. I love how Clare learns the beauty and simplicity of prayer, true prayer which means not only talking to Jesus but learning to listen to Him as well. I definitely recommend.

5 of 5 Wonderful Catholic Instruction April 22, 2020
Reviewer: Anonymous Person  
I loved this book. I really love how it demonstrates, in a very approachable/understandable way, how to pray to Jesus from our hearts. I try to teach my children how to have conversations with Jesus, and although they both have vivid imaginations, sometimes it is still difficult to convey to them. I like that this demonstrates how we can talk to Jesus in the same way we would talk to a parent, in a language that is not "just for church." I also love the use of scripture at the end of each scene. I was looking for a book that tied the Scriptures to character qualities and obedience, etc, but the only ones I found were very Protestant in tone. I ordered one of them, but it didn't really fit my need. This book is beautiful. My children (at least my oldest, who just turned 5), can identify with the scenarios and better understand the Scripture. I am just so excited about it. Thanks for writing it, even if that was not your intention originally. Clearly it was meant to be written :) It helps me put into words the struggles my children have and how they hurt our relationship with each other and the Church in a more Catholic manner than I have seen before.

5 of 5 Terrific teaching tool for parents and teachers April 22, 2020
Reviewer: Anonymous Person  
Terrific teaching tool for parents and teachers. I have given these books to our Catholic school and will buy a set for my grand kids. These stories bring our faith in to real life situations for kids. Very easy to see the out come of bad behaviors and how they effect others and ourselves.
