What Are We Currently Reading?
A bit about this book, from the description at Catholic Heritage Curricula:
The King of the Golden City is a fascinating tale which breathes into the heart of the child a deep understanding of Holy Communion while fostering a profound love for Our Lord in the Blessed Sacrament.
Originally published in 1921, this classic tale has long been a favorite of young and old. This quality gift edition features 8 full-color paintings which bring the story to life for young readers. A perfect book for preparing and celebrating a child’s First Holy Communion!
This book was originally written for a young child who asked Mother Loyola what she must do to prepare for her First Holy Communion. The child asked for a story with hidden messages. 120 pgs. 6″x9″ Softcover. 8 full color paintings.
