Articulate, accessible, amazing.
This book is a great introduction to the use of icons in the Eastern Orthodox church. It shows several popular icons and describes what they represent and why and how they are used. The explanations are great. We read this book as part of our studies on the Byzantine Empire. My daughters (first grade and preschool age) enjoyed this read-aloud.
Another excellent children's book from Conciliar Press. Great introduction to iconography for children along with excellent theological and practical nuggets to go along with!
