More of a theological discussion of Satan and what Catholics believe than detailed discussions around exorcisms preformed.

Excellent book for children to talk about their bodies and the name of body parts. All the children have underwear on and no discussion of sexual parts, so this is a good book for very young children. It contains several tranparent overlays which makes the book very appealing.

Like others who reviewed this I found it difficult to understand her having an affair with a married man after her husband left her for the another man. The travel was fun to read about and it was an easy read.

This book provides a great visual challenge in finding all the differences. My son really loved animals and would spend a lot of time comparing the pictures to find the difference when he was younger. An older child may grow bored with it after they find the differences once, but it can be a fun book to cuddle with your little one and talk about all the different details.

This book was very informative on the psychology of co-dependency and helps you to understand how to recognize when you are doing things to make others happy and it is hurting you.

My son and I read this together when he was 9. We enjoyed reading it together and it got him more into reading. Until I found this book, the nightly 20 minute reading homework was a constant challenge. Engaging story!
