My First Holy Communion Hardback
by Sophie Piper
Illustrated by Angelo Ruta
This book has the colour illustration, textual simplicity and styling to appeal to children around the age of 7 - and all the charm and respectfulness to appeal to the adult buying the book.
Designed with a fill-in page to commemorate the event, space for a photo to be stuck in and an acetate wrap to protect the white mock leather cover, it contains prayers - including many from or inspired directly by the Bible - on the themes of praising God, acknowledging one's baptism, coming to confession, taking part in holy communion, and seeking the great virtues.
The book concludes with a section of appealing and reassuring blessings. This will be welcomed not only as a memento of a special day, but as a collection of prayers on which to establish an ongoing repertoire.
