Both authors of this work have been on my radar for a while. In fact, I have books from both of them in my ‘to be read’ pile. But this was the first Book I have read from either. I have previously listened to some of Vinny’s audio CD talks and was very impressed. But I was even more impressed by this excellent volume. The day this book arrived it caught my youngest two children’s attention. And we started it immediately. We read it over a week and a half reading a chapter a day. They were fascinated with it from the get go. My wife who is not Catholic was around when we read the second or third chapter. And she ‘happened’ to be there when we read most of the rest of the chapters. My wife asked why my oldest child was not with us, and I mentioned that the book would not appeal to her, or at least not with her younger siblings. So I am on the hunt for a teen book now. This book is truly a gem. An excellent book, Very well written. The kids loved the questions at the end of the chapters. This book as an adaptation of Flynn’s 7 Secrets of Divine Mercy but modified for younger audiences. And it is great! The kids love it. They have talked to their friends and their teachers about the book. It is fantastic to read to young kids, or for middle grade readers and above. The chapters in the volume are: Introduction: Walking Through the Museum Doors The Holy Trinity A Call to Holiness God Loves Backwards St. Faustina Kowalska A Book of Secrets A Painting of Secrets The Prayers of Divine Mercy Living it Out Appendices: How to Pray the Chaplet of Divine Mercy How to Pray the Divine Mercy Novena The way the book is written will keep children engaged and excited about what they are learning. Every chapter begins with an illustration. And they are memorable and help instill the lesson from that chapter. This book is an amazing read! My only complaint is that it is not available as an eBook. Both my children want a copy and want to give it to their school library as well. If the eBook was available, I would only need to pick up one more copy. As it is I will be ordering 4 or 5 copies so that we have it on hand to give away. This is a book we can easily recommend to anyone who reads to and with young readers. Great for school age children. Middle grade readers and even tweens. It is a resource we will be using for years to come. And it is endorsed by the whole family! So, pick it up and give it a read, or better yet pick up 2 so you have one to give away.
My husband and I started praying the Divine Mercy Chaplet before we got married. Thought I knew bits and pieces, I always had planned on reading St. Faustinas diary. Fast forward to having kids, and I never made it a priority. I ordered this book to accompany our journey leading to Divine Mercy Sunday. Wow...what an amazing job the authors did with making this relatable and understandable for my kids. My husband and I both learned a lot too! Such an amazing book. All school age children should have access to this book!
