The "Twelve Great Feasts for Children" series:
Elegant watercolor illustrations highlight the beauty of each of the Church\'s feast days. The simple, psalm-like poems are written especially for children, but the whole family will enjoy them.
In the Orthodox Church Year, the Feast of Feasts, in a class by itself, is the Resurrection. After the Resurrection in importance come the twelve Great Feasts. These feasts are the Church’s celebration of, and participation in, key events leading to our salvation.
Little books for little hands. 24 pages each.
