Catherine and Bernard Scherrer

Written by Catholic parents for their own children, this book introduces the "facts of life" to pre-teens in a reverent and respectful manner by presenting the biological facts in the context of meditations on the joyful mysteries of the Rosary.

Originally published in France, this book has been so popular that it has already been translated and published in six other language editions.

- Cardinal Alfonso Lopez Trujillo, President, Pontifical Council for the Family
