Catholic Stories For Boys And Girls Bottom Line
I liked the Catholic Stories for Boys and Girls. It is one of the best books I have ever read. I am going to give this book a five star rating because I Love This Book!
I am going to read the second book next. For my birthday I got the next two volumes. I cannot wait to read them too! I highly recomend this book.
The short poetry at the end of each chapter inspired me to write my own dedicated to Our Lady:
I learned to trust Our Lord, Our Lady and all the saints. If you are praying to Our Lady, do not give up. She always answers prayers. Not right away, but she will. I hope you learn something new from this book.
