This book was really cheesy. It's a floppy workbook-style intro to being a Catholic godparent and has a really lame attitude. I'm pretty serious about my faith, which is why I was chosen as a godparent, and hopefully why a lot of people are chosen as godparents. This book had a line that went something like "Hey! Don't worry kids, you don't have to be perfect to be a godparent! In fact, you'll probably be a BETTER godparent if you're not perfect!" I mean, come on. It's an attempt to be folksy but ends up insulting people's intelligence. Hopefully, the vast majority of godparents know that nothing and no one on Earth is perfect, and that is the reason we are so fortunate to have confession. The whole book kind of continued in that vein, alternately joking & goading at the godparents-to-be.
This book would be sort of painfully functional for non-practicing Catholics who are being chosen as godparents and forced at knifepoint to take a godparenting seminar. Maybe some churches do this, in that case, it's an ideal textbook.
But it's just plain painful for someone who already attends Mass and receives the sacraments, has already been praying daily for this child even before their birth, prays daily for God's help to be a worthy godparent, and has a desire to share what a gift and what a comfort our faith truly is.
I was hoping for a book that would help me with some creative ideas on how to incorporate teaching the faith into everyday life, fun activities my godchild will enjoy doing together, etc. I'm still looking!
