What better way is there to share Catholic teaching with your young child, than with the words of our Pope? This board book shares some of the wisdom Pope Francis would like kids to know as they grow up.

In Pope Francis Says…, children will see that God loves them, listens to them through their prayers, and expects them to live a good life. He encourages them to be joyful, peaceful, and grateful. As kids look through each page, they will see images of children from all races and backgrounds playing together and living in harmony with each other. Finally, Pope Francis reminds kids that he’s praying for them, and asks for their prayers in return.

Pope Francis Says… is the perfect first book for your preschool child. It should be in every Catholic family’s home.
