The book is written for upper elementary school ages, about second through sixth grades. This is a chapter book, with vocabulary suitable for that age group. There are no illustrations or pictures.
The topical content includes Communism, as this book takes place in 1949 China.
The book features include 10 questions for discussion, making this a suitable book for parochial school reading groups. It also has a Glossary, which defines terms and people such as Chairman Mao, and some Chinese words.
Note: A copy of this book was provided to me by Pauline Books for review purposes.
The truth is that little is known about this young Catholic. We do not even know her name, only the rudiments of her story, but her witness was extraordinary. Prozeller has filled in the blanks, creating a fictionalized version which is incredibly powerful.
Pei is living in China in 1948 just as the Communist regime is beginning to take over. She and her family are faithful Catholics, but as the soldiers move into their community, they arrest the sisters and priests and desecrate the Church. Pei is a witness to this and sees thirty-two consecrated hosts thrown to the ground and trampled upon. She decides to risk her life to go to the Church thirty-two times in the middle of the night to consume one of the hosts and spend a holy hour with Jesus.
Prozeller’s writing is superb. 32 days is powerful and fast-moving. It offers lessons in both the Catholic faith and the historical reality of Communist China. Whether it is read in a Catholic school, homeschool, or as a family read-aloud, it is sure to foster much conversation. The included discussion questions can provide a springboard for that dialogue.
(I received a review copy of this book from Pauline Books & Media, but no compensation, for my review.)
Woven throughout the story are numerous examples of simple, genuine prayer appropriate for children such as petition, thanksgiving, intercessory prayer, the Mass and devotions to nourish a heart-to-heart relationship with Jesus, especially Eucharistic Adoration. In the end, it is this deep friendship that strengthens Pei during her trials and gives her the courage to sacrifice all for Christ.
Through this engaging and inspiring story 32 DAYS inspires the young to seek a personal relationship with Jesus nourished by power and gift of the Eucharist.
Pauline Books & Media provided me with a free copy of 32 Days in exchange for an honest review.
