Additional Notes

From The Publisher*An invitation for children to wonder about the Lenten story. This unique book teaches children to experience Lent with all their senses, and to see it as a special time for creating a welcoming space for God. Simple activities like cleaning a room, making bread and soup, and inviting a neighbor for supper become acts of justice and kindness, part of a life of following Christ, and a way to make room for God in our lives and in the world around us. "Children of all ages will come away with a broader understanding of the holy Lenten season and what it means to prepare for the glorious gift of Easter and new life in Christ." - Michelle Thomas-Bush, Big Ideas in Youth Ministry "The book reveals what is usually hidden: what we knew as penitential is actually life-giving and faith-building. After reading the book to my kids, my five year old daughter exclaimed "I can't wait for Lent! I just can't wait!" - Gary Neal Hansen, Author of Kneeling with Giants: Learning to Pray with History's Best Teachers "Dr. Alary truly respects the child and asks us to walk with them as they point us to Christ. This is a wonderful resource." - Rev. Olivia Stewart, Director of Children & Worship "This is a poetic, practical and theologically wise book for children." - L. Ann Jervis, Professor of New Testament, Wycliffe College, University of Toronto
