"We are constantly on the search for creative ways to help youngsters tap into their memories, images, and icons of our faith...[This book] is faithful while being seriously laced with the comic and the delightful! I'd like to put this book into the hands of every parent or teacher." — Bill Huebsch, Catechetical Pastoral Planner, Minnesota

"An excellent resource brimming over with humor, creativity, and joy. These playful images will stir teh imagination and surely enable children to encounter Jesus in new and exciting ways." — Edith Prendergast, RSC, Diocesan Director of Religious Education, Archdiocese of Los Angeles

"A must-have for any child's personal library. As a person immersed in the study of psycho-spirituality of children and adults I found this book to be the bridge needed between personal spirituality and whole community catechesis. I only wish there were MORE than twenty-six letters in the alphabet!" — Robert W. Piercy, Jr., National Catechetical and Litrugical Consultant, Chicago

"Through Mickey's whimsical art, adult and child can share scripture and create moments together that bring both closer to Jesus. This book belongs in every home and classroom where the first teachers of faith begin the journey with a child." — Jennifer Palermo, second-grade teacher, catechist, and mother of two, Westchester, Illinois

"Something wonderful is happening in this alphabet book for Catholics. It delightfully illlustrates how catechesis flowers through art. Truly a catechetical resource to be treaured by all families and catechists." — Sister Linda L. Gaupin, CDP, Ph.D, Diocesan Director of Religious Education, Orlando

"A book of delights. The readers, no matter the ages, will know themselves as friends and family of Jesus: studying the family history, gazing at the family album, learning a vocabulary of riches. Brother Mickey brings us joyfully to the loving arms and heart of Jesus." — Susan Kay, Assistant Director of Religious Education, Archdiocese of Boston

"This charming, vibrant book introduces even the youngest child to important scriptural concepts and stories. My three-year-old simply adores the engaging illustrations, and I love reading the creative text. A must for any family who wants to introduce and reinforce the presence of Jesus in our everyday lives." — Amy Smith, High-school English teacher and mother of two, Minneapolis

" a fresh and imaginative new alphabet book that brings thoughtful reflection on faith and symbol to both children and the adults that are reading with them."— Crux of the News, December 2007

"This engaging alphabet book is filled with amazing and beautiful artwork, and brimming with biblical references.  My five year old son loved searching for the hidden letters of the alphabet amongst the illustrations. The book stimulated much conversation about vocabulary that was new to him throughout the text.  Faith enriching, fun and an excellent teaching tool as well." — Nancy Sullivan, Grand Rapids, MI (as appears on blog)

A great gift for a new baby, a baptism, Christmas, or the first day of school!
