What people are saying about The Illuminated Rosary series:
It’s just ingenious and so simple! The most beautiful book, in which every page corresponds to one bead of the Rosary and showcases one work of sacred art upon which to meditate! It’s the perfect First Communion gift. . . . (read full review)
—Leila Miller, Little Catholic Bubble
This book is absolutely beautiful! My kids love being able to keep up with the beads at the bottom and I love being able to meditate on the mysteries using the artwork to keep me focused. Please keep the wonderful books coming!
We used this book to say our rosary on the day of the March For Life, and the kids sat quiet and engrossed by the lovely artwork, a different painting for each bead of each mystery. Highly recommended.
I just bought the Joyful Mysteries, my boys (5 & 6yrs) and I have been using it for the past 3 nights at bedtime! In fact, I let them stay up a bit later than usual last night & told them no books, straight to bed! But they insisted we had to see our “Mary Book”, so I caved! I love that the pictures really get them to understand each Mystery….
We bought this book for our children’s Easter basket after seeing it mentioned on a blog. We love its simplicity: a prayer for each page, roses on the bottom of each page to keep track of the Hail Marys, and new artwork for each prayer. A child can easily move through the rosary thanks to this book. Our son enjoyed selecting his favorite piece of artwork, and we appreciated the various kinds of artwork represented. We’d like to have all of these books but have started with Joyful. This would make a lovely gift for baptisms, First Communions, Christmas, Easter, Name Days, special Feast Days your family celebrates, etc. Nice work, PB & Grace!
The Joyful Mysteries came Saturday, and we were just blown away by it. Absolutely beautiful. The artwork is stunning, the whole presentation of the mysteries, how to pray the Rosary, the listing of the artwork at the end, all are done with such excellence.
