The Book of the Holy Child is the First Grade text in the Highway to Heaven Catechism Series. It introduces young children to Our Lord and the Holy Family as well as Jesus’s Eucharistic Presence in the Tabernacle. Full of large, 2-color illustrations, this is the sort of textbook you or your parents might remember.
Produced by the Marquette University Institute of Catechetical Research under the editorship of Edward A. Fitzpatrick in the 1930’s, the Highway to Heaven Series of Religion textbooks is a breath of fresh air. Unashamed love of the Catholic Faith is evident on every page.
