This is the latest in this series aimed at young Anglicans. The previous ones have included What We Do In Church and What We Do In Advent .The idea behind the series is that it teaches families about aspects of the faith. The key word here is families , because although the books themselves are clearly for children, and 4-7 years old at that, they actually have something to teach the whole family and there are Parent Pages that contain background information and advice for parenting in the pews (and let's be honest, some parents really need to learn this!).Although these books are written by Episcopalians, they are more than suitable for any demination that uses the liturgical calendar.Illustrated throughout, and with mazes, crosswords, join the dots and more, this is a fun way to teach children about what is traditionally a solemn season.
