Renowned child psychologist Dr. Amanda Gummer commented on the book’s value: “Children can have many mixed feelings when their parents separate or divorce and I applaud anyone who offers support and tools to help them understand the process and manage their feelings. Storybooks such as the story of Moon Fairy and Sun Prince are a lovely, gentle way for children to understand that life can still be happy and fulfilling after parents separate. This is also a great way for parents to open-up conversations about their family arrangements; giving them the opportunity to talk to their children about the situation and explain how any changes will affect them and be implemented. Young children often struggle to voice their concerns and anxieties as they may not have the vocabulary to express themselves in the way they’d like; similarly, older children may not want to talk directly about it for fear of upsetting their parents. Using fantasy characters such as the ones in the book give the children a way of thinking and talking about the situation without making it too personal or sad. My recommendation is that parents first read this book together with their child and then, for those children who are old enough to read themselves, leave it somewhere accessible so they can return to it whenever they choose and re-read the parts of the story that are relevant to their situation or resonate with them.”
To read this book is tantamount to joining Father Bouyer at the Easter Vigil and having the privilege of hearing his catechetical and mystagogical instructions to the newly baptized. Father Bouyer's meditations on discovering God, on baptism–confirmation–Eucharist, and on life in Christ are here presented with the spiritual power of a Saint Cyril of Jerusalem. This book will renew and re-center all Christians and is a perfect gift for catechumens." – Matthew Levering, James N. and Mary D.
