This month, we are thrilled to offer our readers the opportunity to win one of two copies of the amazing children’s book Lolek – The Boy Who Became Pope John Paul II by Mary Hramiec Hoffman and Mark Hoffman. Just in time for Christmas, this book will become a family favorite in your home! The story is compelling (and true!) and the book’s illustrations and overall presentation make it a true treasure.
The following is a brief description of this fantastic book:
Lolek is a celebration of the childhood of Pope John Paul II. He was a little boy who, despite tragedy and oppression in his young life during World War II, was a shining example for his peers and adults alike. Pope John Paul II was a world class freedom fighter, campaigning for world peace as a human rights advocate and defender of the oppressed. During his combat against world poverty, he taught that every life is precious no matter one’s nationality or religious belief, whether one is rich or poor, young or old. One of Lolek’s greatest achievements was the downfall of Communism in Europe. He encouraged people to feel their own power, and the power of faith led to the freedom of half a continent.
