Stories & Prayers by Jan Godfrey, Illustrations by Paola Bertolini Grudina
Celebrate baby's new life with this treasured keepsake and prepare the way for a lifelong friendship with Jesus!
This beautiful picture Bible is the perfect Baptismal gift for a child up to age 4. Opening with a gift dedication page, the child will always be reminded of who shared in celebrating his or her special day.
To forever cherish baby's birth and Baptism, there are various beginning sections to personalize. Detailed information related to baby's birth, such as name, birthplace, and weight, are included in a fill-in the blank format. A basic ancestral birth tree extending to the grandparent generation captures familial bonds that little ones will become curious about as the years progress. Spaces for recording early milestones-baby's first smile, baby's first words-preserve once-in-a-lifetime moments to fondly look back upon.
These personalized sections lead into Biblical stories. A table of contents clearly defines the page numbers for various stories-from creation to Jesus' birth and death-enabling easy access to your favorites. At the conclusion of these stories, children will be introduced to their first Catholic prayers, including The Sign of the Cross, Our Father, Hail Mary, a few bedtime prayers, and blessings.
Endearing, calming illustrations are interspersed throughout each two-page Bible story spread, providing perfect nightly vignettes to share during bedtime. Basic, kid-friendly sentences, immersed in dialogue, will keep young ones intrigued. My Baptism Bible Catholic Edition is not only a precious memento, but a gift that will impress the faith upon our little blessings as they grow in God's love.
