Children’s book on John Paul II published in Spain

.- Two elementary school teachers in Valencia, Spain, have published a new children’s book entitled “John Paul II the Great,” which tells the life of the late Pontiff. Mar Sanchez Marchori, one the book’s authors, told the Avan news agency that the book is intended for children between the ages of 8 and 12 and reflects the values embraced by John Paul II in his life, such as courage, love for those in need, forgiveness, joy, creativity and sacrifice.

She also said the book would be translated into different languages and made available to families attending the V World Meeting of Families in Valencia next year.

The new book is part of a series published Palabra that includes books on Christians of the 20th century, including Padre Pio, Blessed Mother Teresa of Calcutta, and St. Jose Maria Escriva.

The collection is available in bookstores in Great Britain, France, Italy, the Netherlands and some countries in Latin America.
