This unique book teaches children to experience Lent with all their senses, and to see it as a special time for creating a welcoming space for God.

'Children of all ages will come away with a broader understanding of the holy Lenten season and what it means to prepare for the glorious gift of Easter and new life in Christ. Michelle Thomas-Bush, Big Ideas in Youth Ministry www.bigideasym.com 'The book reveals what is usually hidden: what we knew as penitential is actually life-giving and faith-building. After reading the book to my kids, my five year old daughter exclaimed 'I can't wait for Lent! I just can't wait!' Gary Neal Hansen, Author of Kneeling with Giants: Learning to Pray with History's Best Teachers 'Dr. Alary truly respects the child and asks us to walk with them as they point us to Christ.
