This book is the first in a two-part series designed to help parents and families prepare for the Sacraments of First Reconciliation and First Eucharist with their children. It takes a step-by-step approach to the Sacrament of Reconciliation using accessible, child-friendly language and illustrations, and emphasises the sacrament as a joyful moment of healing with God and with each other.
The book is divided into eight parts, each ending with a ‘PJ Prayer’ to be said before bed.
