In Clare's Costly Cookie, we listen to the journey of a nine year old girl as she travels into the heart of Jesus leaving her self-love behind. As if that isn't enough, Julie Kelly presents the reader with an
astonishingly painless short course in holiness for the child in all of us. Without a doubt, Our Lord is
effortlessly catechizing the reader with the turn of each page. Mercifully drawn into Clare's humble
heart Our Lord uses her quest for piety as a vehicle to renew ours.
Recommended Grade 4 and up. Copyright 2013. Dimensions: 5.5 x 8.5 inches. Soft cover. 96 pp.
My 10 year old daughter just loved this book! It held her attention and she was anxious to pick it up and read it. Not only did it bring enjoyment to reading she just told me, "that book really inspired me" "I want to have a close relationship with Jesus and talk to him every day like Clare."
I have looked for more books by Julie Kelly and can not find anymore. I sure hope she brings us more wonderful stories like this. Thank you.
