Most of the books contain obvious nods to Catholic history, morality and spirituality, and none are hostile to it. We are happy to offer this selection of books in hopes that they may provide an alternative for parents who want their kids to read things that educate, build, and uplift rather than undermine, attack and destroy their Catholic values.

We are offering an additional 20% off everything on the site through December 17. To make use of the discount:

  1. Visit The Young Catholic’s Bookshelf website.
  2. Place an order prior to December 17, 2012.

A Special Mother is Born

By Leticia Velasquez

“Your daughter has symptoms that are consistent with Down syndrome.” The nurses were surrounding author Leticia Velasquez in the delivery room when they uttered these fateful words—words that hit her stomach like a sucker punch. She was frightened and overwhelmed, but she was not alone. Four months earlier, God spoke to her in the depths of her heart; He told her that Christina had Down syndrome and that she was a gift from His hand.

If you are faced with a prenatal diagnosis or are raising a child with special needs, this book is for you. Thirty three parents who have walked in your shoes share how they encountered Christ alongside them in the darkness. You are not alone.”

Price reduction on e-book this December.  A great deal in paperback, Kindle or eBook for anyone and especially a parent dealing with these issues.  Add to your to-read list or give as a gift!
