Most children are baptized as infants. This beautifully illustrated book will endure for years after that special day, helping children to realize that at their baptism, they became a child of God and a member of his family, the Church. Jesus speaks directly to the children, explaining step by step what happened at their baptism and why. Each part of the rite is linked to a scene from Scripture, such as the story of Noahs Ark and Jesus own baptism in the Jordan. Pages for photos and other memories make this a thoughtful gift for any child who is being baptizeda gift they will enjoy as they begin to understand the special friendship they have with Jesus.
