FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
CHICAGO, February 28, 2023 — Prolific Catholic children’s author Amy Welborn presents children with an inspiring and educational look at the feasts, seasons, and celebrations of the church year in Loyola Kids Book of Seasons, Feasts, and Celebrations (Loyola Press, March 2023). This is the sixth book in the popular Loyola Kids series, five of which were penned by Welborn.
Welborn explains that the structure of the book sets it apart from other children’s books that explain the liturgical year, in that she provides a simple roadmap for children to follow. “You’ll Hear” focuses on the readings of a feast or season, “You’ll Pray” covers the types and focus of prayer for the celebration, “You’ll Sing” helps children prepare for the types of liturgical music and songs they can expect, “You’ll See” gives children things to look for that indicate the feast or season like the colors of vestments and altar cloths, and “You’ll Do” explains the types of activities that are common or traditional during the liturgical season or for the feast.
Loyola Kids Book of Seasons, Feasts, and Celebrations is a go-to guide for parents, teachers, grandparents, or anyone who wants to help children learn to love the Church and actively participate in its liturgical celebrations.
Another key element of Loyola Kids Book of Seasons, Feasts, and Celebrations, is the inclusion of facts and stories about how the seasons and feasts are celebrated around the world.
“In this book, I want to offer more than just information and facts, as important as those are,” Welborn says. “The guiding principle is the way in which the feasts and seasons of the liturgical year invite us on a journey with Jesus. I hope to invite children to engage with the liturgical year as an adventure in which they’ll be comforted, challenged and brought closer to Jesus as they walk with him.”
