|Review:||Long ago when I was getting ready for my First Communion, my grandmother bought me a copy of the entire St. Joseph Catechism series to supplement my CCD text. Recently I got a copy for my (non-Catholic) 10- and 8-year-old grandchildren when they started asking me questions about religion. The book has been updated some since 1966, but still has the clearest brief explanations of grace and the Eucharist for this age group that I know.|
