Great book for a child just starting to learn prayers.
It has the prayers, but insufficient help with following Mass

I was looking for a missal suitable for a 10-year old. I also wanted it to have most of the common prayers. This looked like a reasonable choice. And it does a very good job with prayers and wonderful reasons why you would use them.
It only has a very few poorly formatted pages for assisting a youngster trying to follow along at Mass. I found this more frustrating than helpful. I bought this for a young relative who is only now beginning to learn the faith. We will continue looking.
Awesome Book for Kids

I bought one of these for each of my sunday school kids. It has the new revised prayers. The kids loved it. I couldn't have asked for a better book.
