the catholic library world

"illustrated on vibrant primary colors, the spirituality of being is creatively represented through the manifestation of the "voice" of god.  unique in presentation, this tale shows how we are all connected to everyone and everything from the scope of a very big story to that of a very personal one. non-denominational and simply told, the story is open enough to present itself on many levels and appeal to all ages."
