    Great Confirmation Gift!

    I bought several of these to give as Confirmation gifts. I was pleasantly surprised at the quality of the book for the price. The paper is a better quality white paper, and the textured hardcover and binding are of nice quality. There are both black and white as well as color illustrations. Thank you!

    I would buy this product again and again

    I love the book, but it has a flaw - the cover is upside down from the book - to open the book so it is right side up, you must turn the cover upside down and backwards - I was going to return it for a replacement, but I love the contents so much, once I opened it, I couldn't bear to part with it for even a day. Now I just smile at the imperfection - if you were to send me another (perfect) one, I would then send my flawed copy back to you!
