While I was putting together my book sale post for this year I ran across another bargain priced book over at Amazon and finally have a minute to share the link with you all! According to Amazon, once upon a time we paid $26.95 for our copy of this sweet book: Manners in God's House: First Prayers and First Missal... That was back when it was published by Neumann Press before it was acquired by TAN Books. Right now it's only $11.54 over at Amazon!!!
Manners in God’s House is a combined edition of three books, originally issued in 1950, includes:
- Let’s Pray: First Prayers for Little Catholics: provides phrase by phrase, in-depth explanations of the Sign of the Cross, Our Father, Hail Mary, and more, encouraging young readers to connect deeply with these universal prayers.
- Good Manners in God’s House: uses beautiful full-color pictures to show how to act in church, from the moment you enter and cross yourself with holy water until you pray thanksgiving after Mass. It also teaches children interior prayer and meditation, to bring their soul closer to God before Mass.
- My Little Missal in Pictures: illustrates each stage of the Mass; its captions help children appreciate the meaning of each part of the Mass, from start to finish. Its attention-grabbing comparisons between the Mass and the Scripture provide inspiration for even your smallest missal-carrier.
I usually just pull it off the shelf and read it to our little ones, but every once in awhile I will incorporate it into a lesson as pictured in our Blessed Trinity Shamrock "Glory Be" Prayer Poster Catechism Craft. It is such a sweet book and I love all the illustrations!
Great prices on these as well:
