Synopsis

My First Holy Communion by Sophie Piper

This book has the colour illustration, textual simplicity and styling to appeal to children around the age of 7 - and all the charm and respectfulness to appeal to the adult buying the book. Designed with a fill-in page to commemorate the event, space for a photo to be stuck in and an acetate wrap to protect the white mock leather cover, it contains prayers - including many from or inspired directly by the Bible - on the themes of praising God, acknowledging one's baptism, coming to confession, taking part in holy communion, and seeking the great virtues. The book concludes with a section of appealing and reassuring blessings. This will be welcomed not only as a memento of a special day, but as a collection of prayers on which to establish an ongoing repertoire.

Reviews

This is a gift book that is sure to be used. It has a presentation page and a marker ribbon and is a book of prayers compiled from many sources and some written especially for this book. These are not babyish prayers but they are child friendly. In fact they say exactly what we need to say, all of us, particularly the prayers asking for forgiveness - I thought these were some of the best I have read. Highly recommended. The Good Book Stall
