Today I Was BaptizedProduct Code: BK1070
This charming book begins with a heartwarming story of a baby baptism day. The story is written from the perspective of the baby and brings out all the newness and specialness of this day. The illustrations are by Bill Shurtliff who masterfully uses the family, home, and church settings, accentuated by angels, babies, and a few pets, to create an illustrated guide to the Sacrament of Baptism. The illustrated story is enough to make this a treasured book. But there is more. The Short Essays on Baptism that follow the story section are particularly enlightening for older children and adults. They serve to remind us of the history, meaning, and the absolute importance of the Sacrament of Baptism. Another feature that makes Today I Was Baptized special is the ability to personalize the book, making it a cherished memento of the baptism day. There is space for Mom and Dad, godparents, and others to write messages to the baby and describe the day. There is also an area for photographs and other mementos. The quality of the book along with the ability to personalize it, make this both a perfect gift and perfect keepsake of a baby's baptismal day.
