New Liturgical Movement - Two Books for Children

The New Liturgical Movement's Dr. Peter Kwasniewski posted today regarding two books for children. Read about it here. His post also linked to his review from last December regarding the Sacred Art Series' The Holy Gospels of St. Luke and St. John. If you missed the review then, here's the link. And here's an excerpt:
My photos don’t really do it justice, but they will give you a sense of how Bloomfield has made a reader’s Bible that is both maximally useful and unquestionably beautiful. As a teacher of Scripture, I can testify that Bloomfield is right to say that beginning readers are often distracted and discouraged by the unfriendly layout of most Bibles, with their tiny print, dual columns, chapter and verse numbers, footnotes, and other paraphernalia that almost amount to a warning: “This book that you are now holding is an old, technical, difficult, forbidding tome that you can’t just open up and enjoy reading. Think twice before diving in.”  This new book has just the opposite effect: you want to take it up and read it as the story that it is -- the greatest story ever told.
Thanks again to Dr. Kwasniewski for his kind review!
