An invitation for children to wonder about the Lenten story. This unique book teaches children to experience Lent with all their senses, and to see it as a special time for creating a welcoming space for God. Simple activities like cleaning a room, making bread and soup, and inviting a neighbor for supper become acts of justice and kindness, part of a life of following Christ, and a way to make room for God in our lives and in the world around us.
"Children of all ages will come away with a broader understanding of the holy Lenten season and what it means to prepare for the glorious gift of Easter and new life in Christ."
— Michelle Thomas-Bush, Big Ideas in Youth Ministry www.bigideasym.com
"The book reveals what is usually hidden: what we knew as penitential is actually life-giving and faith-building. After reading the book to my kids, my five year old daughter exclaimed "I can't wait for Lent! I just can't wait!"
— Gary Neal Hansen, Author of Kneeling with Giants: Learning to Pray with History's Best Teachers

— Rev. Olivia Stewart, Director of Children & Worship
