Review: Of Bells and Cells

Upon reading a review of a new children's books entitled Of Bells . . . and Cells by M. Cristina Borges, I bought it for our children. (One can read the full review here.)

This book is a useful addition to a home full of Catholic children. It introduces them to religious vocations, as well as the history and details of all the major orders. Although a slim book, this is not a short story book to read in one sitting, but one to read a page or two at a time when the children are gathered.

The illustrations are beautiful and the text is orthodox. My 5-year-old can follow along with this book, but it is written with simple but elevated language and would be of interest to all ages of children and teens--and frankly adults too!
