But Jesus said, “Let the little children come to Me, and do not forbid them; for of such is the kingdom of heaven.” - Matthew 19:14
Childhood is a precious and delicate thing. As parents, we have been given the sacred task of guiding and shaping our children’s development. As Christians, we know that our success as parents isn’t measured by our children’s grades or future careers, but by whether or not we have helped to show them Christ.
This book is designed to introduce children to the foundations of the Orthodox faith in a simple and accessible format and to help them understand the most important truths of the Gospel: love for God and our neighbor, mercy, compassion, and hope. Children who grow up in this modern world often have serious and pressing questions that adults sometimes find difficult to answer. Our book will try to help.
Based on the classic Orthodox catechetical work “The Law of God,” this book is ideal for parents teaching their children, for Sunday school classes, for homeschool co-ops and for children to read to themselves. We’re also pleased to have the original illustrations of artist Victor Domin!
Suitable for ages 7+ with parental guidance and for 12+ with self study.
5”x8”, 116 pages. As always, please contact us directly for wholesale, bulk, or homeschool co-op orders or in case of financial need.

A Note on Shipping
All of our books will be available on Amazon.com with Amazon’s standard shipping options. They can also be ordered through our website. Unfortunately, when ordering through our website, the shipping might make the books take a little longer (a week or two) to arrive so if you’d like your book in a few days, Amazon is the best bet. However, Amazon does take a sizable percentage of the price and we are a small business, run by a mission priest to help support his family. And so if you’re able to wait a week or two, we appreciate every order coming through the website and apologize that it won’t be quite as convenient. Also, we may occasionally be able to have sales on our books on the website. If you are a Church bookstore and would like to order multiple copies with a wholesale discount, we can best accommodate you through the website. Please email editor at exaltationpress dot com.
