I wanted to give a shout out about this awesome book, Catechism of the Seven Sacraments. Yes, it’s lego book. And it’s pretty impressive. My girls were never really into legos (not like other kids I know). But I have nephews and a godson with brothers. This book is a great fit for the young Catholic kids (and likely boys) in your life!
This is an IDEAL gift for a godchild, young Catholic relative, sacrament celebrations, or holy days, including the Twelve Days of Christmas!
Catechism of the Seven Sacraments is by Kevin and Mary O’Neill and, I get the impression, their family. Here’s the official blurb:
“With its engaging graphic-novel format and stunning building brick layouts, Catechism of the Seven Sacraments makes profound theological concepts accessible for both children and adults.
Following Pope Emeritus Benedict XVI’s teachings on Covenant Theology, this book sheds light on the parallels between the Old Testament and the New Testament and the sacraments instituted by Christ that we experience today.”
Here’s what I loved about it:
- Printed in the USA
- Solid binding, thick pages – needed by small hands
- Engaging lego scenes, full of detail
- Comprehensive. They covered it ALL.
- Theologically dense. Amazingly so! You might think you won’t learn something from this, but you will. As such, it …
- Can grow as kids grow. At first they will love love love the lego aspect. Over time the lessons will seep in. And stick!
- Faithful to Catholic Teaching
This book is available from Amazon, directly from the publisher or from popular Catholic vendors, such as The Catholic Company and Holy Heroes. So if you already have an account with one of these companies, add it to your next order!
