My First Communion by Angela M. Burrin, Sue Doggett

The celebration of a child's first Holy Communion is a very special event for the whole family. This book not only commemorates the occasion but takes the reader through the stages of God's relationship with him or her as outlined in the Bible.


From The Church Times - June 2009 Although the celebration of first communion tends to be associated with the Roman Catholic tradition, this book is a valuable resource for those preparing for it as a separate occasion from confirmation in an Anglican church. Taking you through the journey of the Bible, each story is tied into taking communion, along with scrapbook space at the back for personal memories, Bible verses, and photos. Charmingly bordered and illustrated, it would make a lovely keepsake for any child preparing for the occasion. Reviewed by Imogen Phillips

It gives me a chance to read types of books that I would not normally try, and it motivates me to read every night to finish it!
