Pope Benedict tells children that if we grow in our friendship with
God then we will find true happiness and become saints. In this
beautifully illustrated book, popular author Amy Welborn introduces Pope
Benedict's simple yet profound message to children, given during talks
to children his recent visit to England.
In this very colorful
book by acclaimed artist Ann Englehart, the Pope's words come to life as
he interacts with the children, showing all children how only God can
satisfy the deepest needs of our hearts.
Interspersed are prayers
