Reviews - What do our customers think?
Great Spiritual Resource for the Interchurch Family  Oct 10, 2007
I found this book in the library first before I bought it and I liked the values that it would teach through the paintings of some of the greatest artists of all time - Giotto, Diego Velazquez, Jean-Francois Millet & Caravaggio. It is inspiring for children and adults alike. It teaches children what they really need to know about: love, respect, family, understanding, learning, determination, forgiveness, choosing heaven, true happiness, thinking, selflessness, & listening. Sister Wendy has really understood the concepts of Vatican II, rediscovering Christian Unity, and she presents them in a very ecumenical way so that this book can be used by all Christians and it is especially useful in an interchurch home.
Lovely and thoughtful gift  May 14, 2007
I bought this book for a god-daughter's first communion. The pictures are unique (not typical art-history pictures) and very thoughtful commentary from Sr. Wendy. An enjoyable, unique gift for a godchild or other spiritual event.
Love Sister Wendy  Mar 14, 2006
Loving Sister Wendy's Book of Meditations, I wanted to share the love with my nine year old grandson. Advice: Take one picture, one meditation, and elicit from him what he sees in the picture, what he thinks it means, etc. In a few days, or next week, sit together and discuss another picture. This is a "delicious" menu which must be savored slowly and deliberately, to be enjoyed for its best. Do not, repeat do not, read it with your child as though it were a novel. Do it right and you and your child will love it.
Great Choices of Paintings by Sister Wendy Beckett  May 3, 2004
5/2/04 This book was a "great find"(on the shelf of children's books at a 'St Vincent de Paul Society' thrift store...The knowledge that the pictures are not your 'traditional'masterpiece paintings make the 'visual tour' of it one which makes you keep returning to find where did those 'cameo' pictures come from that Sister Wendy Beckett has placed throughout the book (e.g. The jacket is Domenico Ghirlandaio's "Portrait of an Old Man and a Young Boy"(which is on Page 10 and is also listed on the 'picture list'/page 32 as being at the Musee du Louvre,Paris . The book is not too extreme for today's child (1.their cartoons 2.their 'rap artists' & 3.their extreme sports , make this book which would have been controversial in the 1980's ,just contemporary in its year 1995 publication ,first by Great Britain's Dorling Kindersley Limited ,followed by a "First American Edition" by New York,USA's DK Publishing Inc....,with colors enhanced by Verona,Italy's G.R.B. Graphica.
Not appropriate for very young children  May 28, 1999
Although this is a lovely book, with many lovely thoughts and lessons, there are some paintings that young children will find disturbing. Even my thirteen-year-old daughter was shocked by the painting of the murder of a Pope. There is also some semi-nudity (from the rear) which readers should be aware of. Although this book encourages children to love God, I feel Sister Wendy could have chosen paintings more appropriate for children.
