Do you wish that your child would follow along and participate more during the Divine Liturgy? This book teaches children how they can be active participants of the Faith. With beautiful photographs of children demonstrating what they can do at church, it is sure to be a favorite with the little one in your life!
* Children making the Sign of the Cross are a mirror image so that young children can easily copy the actions using the correct hand.
* Two reading levels of text make it a perfect book for early and established readers.
*Multicultural - shows children of different ethnic backgrounds
* Interactive Book - The text and images encourage the child to participate in the Divine Liturgy and/or practice the things we do at church while at home.
*Board book pages are medium weight which make it durable, yet it's not too thick that an older child would think it's a book for younger children.
Review from Fr. Anton Vrame, Director of Religious Education, Greek Orthodox Archdiocese
"This board book for young children is adorable. When I opened it and read through, I couldn’t help but smile. Each page is children telling children what they can do during the Divine Liturgy. The book encourages the “I can do it myself” natural tendency of a young child. The photos demonstrate church behaviors, making the sign of the cross, venerating an icon, offering a short phrase that a child can say. Photos walk through the Divine Liturgy, reminding the child that he or she can watch the priest. By the end of the book, the child can see that there is a lot he or she can in church. Indirectly, the child learns that the Divine Liturgy is experienced through participation. Wonderfully, the photos depict the racial and ethnic diversity of most Orthodox parishes. One note, many of the photos show actions in reverse, for example, making the cross with the left hand, “mirroring” the behavior, so that the reader will use the correct hand when he or she performs the gestures."
With the 2021 reprint of these books, we made the pages thicker and updated the cover.

My 18 month old son absolutely loves going to church and when we can’t get there, this book absolutely delights him! It has become our bedtime routine to read and point out Xristouli. Thank you for these amazing books for young Orthodox Christians!
Such a perfect ‘lil book. Gifted for my Goddaughter. Really explains what to expect during an Orthodox service. Pictures are bright and inviting for a little one.
Fast shipping! Lovely children's book complete with colorful photos and easy to read text for younger children. My 4 year old liked this as much as the 11 year old! Thanks so much for making Orthodox books for kids!
