Child’s Guide to Baptism – Written in the spirit of the other bestselling titles in the Child’s Guide series, this volume explains in child-friendly language the sacrament of baptism. We meet Anthony, a young boy whose baby brother is about to be baptized. Anthony eagerly invites the reader into his church and explains the importance of this once-in-a-lifetime sacrament.  He leads readers through the baptismal ceremony step-by-step, describing the events through his own eyes. Throughout the book are interactive questions encouraging discussion between the child and parent or teacher: “Do you know why you have the name you do?”; “Do you know the name of your godparents?” When the time finally comes to baptize little James, Anthony proudly joins in the responses with the rest of the group.

Written in clear, simple language, this book:

  • has vivid full-color illustrations throughout
  • can be either read to children or used by beginning readers
  • is a meaningful gift from parents and other family members
  • is the perfect teaching tool for use in Catholic schools or parish CCD classes
