Sorry, now out of print (no plans to reprint).
The Nativity of Christ in simple verses and pictures for young children. Jesus has come to share our poverty and make us gods by grace.
About the "Twelve Great Feasts for Children" series: Elegant watercolor illustrations highlight the beauty of each of the Church's feast days. The simple, psalm-like poems are written especially for children, but the whole family will enjoy them. In the Orthodox Church Year, the Feast of Feasts, in a class by itself, is the Resurrection. After the Resurrection in importance come the twelve Great Feasts. These feasts are the Church’s celebration of, and participation in, key events leading to our salvation.
Little books for little hands. 24 pages each.

She is now the abbess of Holy Assumption Monastery in Calistoga, California. Bonnie Gillis is an iconographer and illustrator. She lives in Langley, B.C. where her husband, Father Michael, is pastor of Holy Nativity Orthodox Church.
