Great book--damaged a bit in shipping Review by Kathy
This is a really nice little book for a child making First Communion.Cover is very nice, pictures and print great.However, my copy was a bit squashed on the tips of the cover and a small part was coming unglued at the inside seam.Not bad enough to send back, but not perfect. Could be packaged better for shipping. Just shipped in an envelope. (Posted on 6/7/2013)
Great Gift For First Communicants Review by annie "grannieannie"
Our parish received a free copy of this from the publisher. When our committee met to discuss what book to purchase for the kids receiving their First Communion, our entire group was very impressed with this book. After discussing several options, we decided to order this for all the kids.The book includes an introductory letter from Fr. Benedict Groeschel which starts: "Dear Child, Today is a very special day. Your whole family is filled with happiness for you, and so am I. We are happy because you will be given a great gift today, one that is better than anything you could get on your birthday or even on Christmas. You will be given the gift of meeting Jesus in a very special way." The entire letter continues in this same beautiful tone.There are 26 Bible stories from the New Testament starting with the Annunciation and ending with the Ascension. All of them are written so that children can understand and learn from them. If you want to read the actual Bible passages that the stories are taken from, the Bible references are included. Also, each story is beautifully illustrated.I am 65 and I still have my First Communion prayer book, and I think this book would make a wonderful keepsake for any child. Be sure and fill out the page with their name, date and your name. (Posted on 5/20/2013)
Poor Quality Item Review by Earl W. Graham
The middle pages were glued together at the bottom and could not be turned without tearing each page. Very poor QC if any at all. This book wasto be a communion gift for my granddaughter but I had to return it. I'm not a happy camper. (Posted on 5/17/2013)
Not Exactly What I Expected Review by L. Donahue
The "Bible" is beautiful. The cover is nice; the pages have gold edging. The illustrations are very nice. However, it is not so much a bible as a story book. The Bible is condensed into a collection of children's stories and is a little young for my son. I would say it was more suitable for a pre-K or Kindergarten child. I was expecting a little more Bible and a little less storybook. Otherwise, a perfectly fine book. (Posted on 4/24/2013)
