The sacrament is the most important part of the Sabbath day—and our week. Teach your little ones about the sacred sacrament and how they can apply it in their everyday lives, from the playground to piano lessons. Help your children start each week right and understand the reason behind the reverence of Jesus’s eternal sacrifice, love, and example.

I loved this book! The author walks children through the sacrament: what it represents, how to behave while it's being passed, and how to apply what we learn through that ordinance throughout the week, no matter what we're doing. It's told in rhyme, which is one of my favorite ways to read children's books, provided it's done well, which this one is. The illustrations are fabulous with lots of detail that will keep young children entertained. There are concepts contained in this book that can start great discussions with older readers. This is a fabulous resource to help teach your children the importance of the sacrament! I love the quality (nice, thick paper) so it will also make a great gift!
