A Perfect Christmas


Written by Dennis Eugene Engleman, Niko Chocheli (Illustrator)

A Perfect Christmas reclaims the spirit of Christmas from the commercial secularized culture of the "winter holidays" that has almost obliterated the Christian meaning of the celebration of the birth of Christ. Author Dennis Eugene Englemann and Illustrator Niko Chocheli have collaborated to restore St. Nicholas ("Santa Claus") to his rightful place in the imagination of children, and perhaps their parents too.

And Then Nicholas Sang: The Story of the Trisagion Hymn


Author: Elizabeth Johnson

Illustrator: Masha Lobastov

Nicholas the Chatterer was an ordinary young boy who loved his home in Constantinople almost as much as he loved to talk. That is, until the day the angels caught him up out of an earthquake and taught him to sing. Then he became Nicholas the Singer. His song saved the city from the earthquakes and entered into the Church's liturgy for all ages, as the Trisagion Hymn. The lyrical text and vivid watercolor illustrations bring fifth-century Byzantium to life, showing children everywhere that they too can be used by God to bring blessings to all mankind.

Hardcover 32 pages.

Size: 10" x 8"

The boy, a kitchen, and his cave


Author Catherine K. Contopoulos, illustrated by Chrissanth Greene-Gross

A clumsy scullery boy finds solace in a place known only to him and his God in this charming story of the ninth-century saint, Euphrosynos, commonly known in Orthodox tradition as The Cook. Author Catherine K. Contopoulos easily links the feelings of contemporary children with the feelings of this legendary character a self-conscious, awkward boy who leaves his loving family and the taunts of his neighbors to find a niche in the kitchen of a monastic community. Readers will hurt when neighbors make fun of a confused Euphrosynos at the local cheese shop, laugh and then tremble when an austere monk slips upon Euphrosynos newly mopped floor, and find an oasis of peace as Euphrosynos prays in his solitary cave. They also will learn lessons of perseverance, humility, and dependence upon God as they are naturally drawn into the story. Contopoulos achieves these goals with language that a child will understand.

Hardcover, 32 pages.
