Mass Coloring BookThis color book is a good way to keep children entertained during Mass while helping them to learn about and understand what is going on. The book measures 8-1/2 by 11 inches and has 32 pages. Emma McKean has combined images with imaginative poetry to explain some of the parts of the Mass in the order that they happen.
On the page for the exchange of peace, the image shows people shaking hands under a dove banner. The verse reads "When the priest gives the word, We joyfully extend Our right hand in greeting each other, as friend.". The book can be taken to Mass on Sundays until the pictures are colored and, when done, you have a book which can be continuously read at Mass to help the young person continue to learn about and participate to some extent in the Mass. The book gives a child a fun activity to do and gives parents the opportunity to talk about the specific things happening during different parts of the Mass depending on which picture the child is coloring. The book could also be used by teachers in a religious education class.
