Fascinating stories and captivating illustrations delight children as they discover and explore the basics of the Catholic Church!

Here are:

  • The great people and events of the Bible
  • The life and message of Jesus
  • The history of the early Church
  • Lives of the saints
  • Fundamental Catholic beliefs and practices
  • And more!

This kid-friendly resource is the ideal read-aloud text for kids in kindergarten through second-grade. It's one that has third- and fourth-graders happily proclaiming, "I can read it myself!"

Unlike most encyclopedias, the format is similar to a storybook, with information presented in a topical style rather than alphabetically. Whether they're listening or reading, youngsters will keep an eye out for "Ichthus", the friendly fish who acts as their guide throughout.

Parents, grandparents, and godparents: This is a perfect First Holy Communion, Christmas, or birthday gift. Librarians, catechists, classroom, and homeschool teachers: This is the solid, Catholic - entertaining! - resource you've been looking for.

About the Author:

Ann Ball is a mother of two as well as a teacher of English and agriculture at Marian Christian High School. She has also worked as a private investigator, though writing is her hobby. She spent ten years researching the lives of the saints for her large work "Modern Saints", and she possesses a considerable amount of files containing information on them. Mrs. Ball holds a B.S. from the University of Houston in education, and is the author of a biography on "Blessed Miguel Pro". She leaves her readers with the following words concerning her active life: \"Being a mother and a teacher are my vocations; security is my job. I love all three, and also my hobby of writing.\"

Julianne has spent more than a decade as a writer, editor, marketing specialist, and designer at newspapers in Indiana and Colorado. She spends her spare time volunteering at the local art museum, studying to be a personal trainer, and seeing things anew through the eyes of her daughter. A cradle Catholic, Julianne is now eagerly sharing her faith as a volunteer in her parish's religious education program.
