When you light the candle, the black screen reveals the image of the guardian angel—an effective symbol of spiritual realities which we perceive only in the light of God. Our guardian angels are assigned to us by God to watch over us and protect us from anything that will separate us from Him. If we pray to them and cooperate with them, they can do a great deal for us. 6.5 x 4.9 x 2.3 inches.
Parents often feel uncomfortable talking to their kids about sex, but today a new challenge for parents may come up before it is even time for “the talk”: talking to one’s children about pornography. The average child now is first exposed to pornography at age 11; parents simply do not have the luxury of avoiding the topic, but neither do they have to face the challenge alone. This short, illustrated book helps parents to talk to kids about the dangers of bad pictures in a sensitive way. It is frank without being uncomfortable, cautionary in a way that will not make children feel afraid or ashamed, and appropriate even for children who do not yet know the details of sex. One of the authors is a licensed psychologist.

In this retelling of the old French legend, a juggler offers to the Christ Child the only Christmas gift he has. According to The Horn Book: “The full-color pictures with subtle tonal modulations are an integral part of the design of the lumious pages full of movement and vitality. The Italianate aspects of the setting are beautifully realized.” Tomie dePaola is a prize-winning author and/or illustrator of more than 250 books for children.
Best-selling poet and essayist Kathleen Norris (The Cloister Walk) and illustrator Tomie de Paola (Strega Nona, The Clown of God) present the story of St. Benedict, father of Western monasticism, and his twin sister, St. Scholastica. De Paola's beautiful art illuminates the text almost in the manner of a medieval manuscript, bringing to life the childhood and personalities of these two saints, their path to religious life, the miracles they performed and their lifelong devotion to God.
VeggieTales have been around for a long time now (remember VHS cassettes?), teaching kids Biblical values through entertaining characters who are, well, vegetables. (Some parents think this is a bad image for kids to have of key figures in salvation history, so give it some thought.) While this DVD is not really ALL the shows, it is a good way to get started, including ten shows from the early period, 1993-1999, which some parents think are the best: Where's God When I'm S-scared??; God Wants Me to Forgive Them?!?; Are You My Neighbor?; Rack, Shack, & Benny; Dave & The Giant Pickle; The Toy That Saved Christmas; LarryBoy and the Fib from Outer Space; Josh & The Big Wall; Madame Blueberry; and LarryBoy and the Rumor Weed. Includes silly songs, too. 2015. Not rated. DVD 322 min.
