Child’s Guide To The Seven Sacraments – n this next volume of the bestselling Child’s Guide series, Elizabeth Ficocelli makes the seven sacraments come alive for youngsters five to nine. We meet Dominic, a little boy who has a school assignment to do a report on the seven sacraments.  The author presents the sacraments in simple and understandable terms, based on the truths of the Catechism. Each sacrament is referenced to its origin in scripture, and then presented in a way the child might experience it today. Throughout the book, there are interactive questions designed to encourage discussion between the child and parent or teacher “What is the name of your priest? Can you think of one special job he does?” There are also several Catholic terms which are explained on an appropriate level.  Whether a child receives religious education through Catholic school or a supplemental catechism class, the book is helpful in explaining the seven sacraments and encouraging the child–and the parent–to make use of these special gifts from God.
