  • This is not for little kids, and this is coming from someone who is Orthodox. I expected something more kid friendly, something to ease into the details about our religion, starting with pictures and age appropriate descriptions. The guilt and the gore aren't needed for little kids. This is why more people are turning away from religion. Icons of bloody Jesus, the icons "need" us, strange and unnecessary parts mentioning "mean, dirty, smelly people", how the cross was used to kill Jesus, and something about endless sin and death. Who wants to tell that to little kids who don't even understand what death is yet? Learning about God is supposed to bring us hope and love, not scare preschoolers.

  • INTRO:
    This is a most wonderful gift for any Christian parent and child. A very readable as well as informative guide AND the only Christian iconic art guide published for children.

    John Kosmas Skinas has also published in 2005, another kids book "Getting to Know God." John Kosmas Skinas lives in San Francisco with his wife and children. They attend Holy Trinity Church, where John is the director of the Christopher Recreation Center.

    DESCRIPTION:
    The 32 page book is a visual delight, full of wonderful iconic Christian art. Every 2 pages contain the icon image, a devotional text related to the subject of the image, and a "Notice This" rubric where a unique or hidden feature of the art is pointed out and explained.

    The list of the iconic images are as follows:
    1) Christ the Pantocrator (the Holder of All Creation)
    2) The Nativity of Our Lord
    3) Christ, Walking on the Water
    4) The Annunciation
    5) Theotokos, Sweet Kissing
    6) The Crucifixion of Our Lord
    7) The Hospitality of Abraham (aka The Holy Trinity)
    8) Noah and the Ark
    9) Guardian Angel
    10) Saint George
    11) Saint Katherine
    12) All American Saints
    13) Christ Blesses the Children
    14) Pages with explanations titled:
    "Here are four ways that icons help us:"
    a) Remind us to pray,
    b) Teach us how to be true followers of Christ,
    c) Keep our minds on God, and
    d) Give us humility.

    CONCLUSION:
    As one can see from the content of the booklet, any adult or child can easily be re-aquainted with the life of our Lord Jesus, and His saints. The content was short enough that I was able to read it to my wife and go thru the whole booklet one evening in less than 40 minutes. The only dissapointment is that (for us adults) it seemed too short. John Kosmas Skinas does a wonderful job explaining Christian iconic art to young and old. Thank you John!

  • This is such a delightful book for children of all ages. The size is easy for children to grasp, the icons are lovely, and the two different options of what to read with each picture makes the book useful for children of many different comprehension levels. I highly recommend this book, especially to Orthodox Christians.

  • We got this book for our toddler daughter to look at during liturgy. We also have the author's other book, "Getting to Know God." It has pictures of icons and gives explanations of them. It's a little wordy for a toddler, but for a preschooler or kindergartener it is great. We bought it more for the photos and knew that our daughter would grow into the text. I like that it has little facts about the icons on each page to make the children focus in on some details, such as, people are always painted the same way so you can identify them or the Holy Spirit & God are shown as a half circle & rays, etc. It helps the children connect what they learn in this book to other icons around the church or at home.

  • “Art screams, ‘Look at me! Look at me!’ Icons whisper, ‘Look at God. Look at God.’” Sweet little book to help children understand more about icons.

  • This is a wonderful book for any Orthodox parent to have.
    I would only like to say that if you're planning on getting it for a toddler, maybe hold off a bit. It's more for school-aged children. I do wish the language was a little simpler.

  • A beautiful and informative book that children can easily understand. I loved the pages on why we use icons. I am planning to suggest the book for use in one of our lower grade Sunday School classes. Our church is in the American Carpatho-Russian diocese, so I was especially thrilled to see the inclusion of the icon of the American Saints. There are also a few Old Testament icons - something you don't see very often. My only complaint is that the book wasn't longer. As always, delivery was timely.

  • This book is just beautiful. We are a home schooling Byzantine Catholic family with 5 young children and this book is so helpful. Great for adults too. I plan on buying a copy for a friend and one for our Church. The text and the Icons are just wonderful. Best $ I ever spent.
