SAN FRANCISCO, March 6, 2014 – Several years ago, Ignatius Press and Magnificat joined forces to launch a new line of beautifully illustrated, high quality, Catholic children’s books. These charming books have captured the imagination of children of various ages through delightful full-color illustrations, exciting stories from the Bible and lives of the saints, and simple yet powerful prayers.
Recently a new book that helps prepare children for the Sacrament of Confession has been added to the series: A Little Book About Confession for Children by popular blogger Kendra Tierney of Catholic All Year.
The Sacrament of Confession is often misunderstood by children and adults alike. While your child is preparing for his or her first Confession, it’s easy for you both to feel overwhelmed. Even if the first Confession was a while ago, perhaps you wish that you and your child had a better understanding of the sacrament.
A Little Book About Confession for Children explains the hows and whys of going to Confession. It includes step-by-step instructions for preparing and receiving this beautiful sacrament of healing, which draws us into the infinite mercy of God. The book even provides an examination of conscience just for kids.
Everything you and your child need to know about the Sacrament of Confession can be found in this informative little book with charming four-color illustrations. A Little Book About Confession for Children is perfect for preparing to receive the Sacrament of Reconciliation for the first time and is sure to be used over and over again.
Author Kendra Tierney explains why decided to write a book on this important topic, “The questions and answers in my book are a result of my own experiences as I helped my son to prepare for his first confession. In my quest to answer all of his questions, I ended up filling in a lot of gaps in my own knowledge of Church teaching, and now we both have a much better understanding of this beautiful sacrament. I hope what we learned can help you too!”
