Synopsis: Sometimes the best teaching tools are stories! And if you have a child, grandchild, or student you re teaching about the Mass, "Anna Goes to a Party and Learns about the Mass" is a an ideal addition to your lesson plans.

Anna is about to make her First Communion, but she doesn't really understand what it's about until her godmother uses a family birthday party to explain about the Mass. Using that same birthday-party symbolism, you and your child can discuss penance, reconciliation, the Eucharist, and the entire Mass.

Critique: The collaborative work of author Gabriele Kramer-Kost and illustrator Tanja Husmann, "Anna Goes to a Party and Learns about the Mass" is a thoroughly 'kid friendly' and impressively organized and presented picture book that is ideal for teaching Roman Catholic children about the sacrament of the Mass, making it unreservedly recommended for family and Sunday School instructional reference collections.
