Book Thoughts by Rachelle
The Sacrament is a neat religious children’s book is from the perspective of members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints and other religions that participate in a weekly sacrament. The book is a poem that tells a story and teaches about the importance of the sacrament and why we take it each Sunday.
The illustrations were perfect and the poem has a great message, although at times the poem had to reach a little far for its rhythm. I think it might have been better just as a narrative, but my kids liked it and were thoughtful about the message.
Here’s more about the book:
It’s understandable that some children appear bored or distracted during sacrament meeting. Many young Latter-day Saints are probably unsure about the true meaning of the sacrament and why we attend. With this in mind, bestselling author John Bytheway has composed a delightful poem (inspired by a short poem by Walter H. Horne) to help Latter-day Saints young and old appreciate the ordinance of the sacrament. In particular, children will learn what they should be thinking about (and not be thinking about) during this sacred time as well as what the sacrament can do for all of us.
Beautifully illustrated by Nathan Pinnock, this thought-provoking story about a young boy and his grandpa is a gentle reminder about the importance of remembering the Lord Jesus Christ, especially during this special meeting meant for Him.
