Every Child a Light by Pope John Paul II

  • May 22, 2005
This book has many memorable pictures of Pope John Paul II with
children of many nationalities and backgrounds. The photography
is in spectacular color. There are memorable sayings by the Pontiff; namely, "Young people are the hope for the future."
The photography shows the Pontiff mixing with the crowds at a time
when he still had considerable mobility and good health. The work
will appeal to a wide constituency of followers throughout the
world. The pictures alone are worth the price of the volume.

About this book


Grade 3-5-Color photographs show Pope John Paul II interacting lovingly with infants and young children. The warmth and sincerity of his feeling toward them are obvious, and he allows them to respond with their own enthusiastic embraces. Each full-page, well-reproduced picture is attractively framed and faces a quotation directed to children or their caregivers from messages the Pope has given during his travels throughout the world in the '80s and '90s. His emphasis is on the love and peace of God and Jesus; the importance of family, prayer, friendship, and moral behavior; the value of the Church; and the beauty of childhood. Surprisingly, since the Roman Catholic faith is worldwide, only 2 photos of the 18 show children of color. Parochial schools and Roman Catholic churches and families would be the most appreciative audience for this book. Text and photographs are from L'Osservatore Romano.
