Book Review: Cloud of Witnesses

This is a beautiful board book to introduce your little one to the Saints! I received a copy in exchange for my honest review, but you can pick up your own copy for your child or Godchild through TAN.

I really like the simple and colorful illustrations of the Saints by Meg Whalen and that the text about each saint focuses on a simple and profound quote expressing one of the key teachings of each saint. The durable board book format will not be easily worn and the adorable illustrations will help catch the attention of your little one at Mass or quiet time reading before bed.

I did search online for Mysteries of Mercy, but only after I tried my best to extrapolate them for myself from Jesus’ Public Ministry.
