Little Catholic Clubhouse and the True Meaning of Christmas
from Little Catholic Clubhouse
The very first adventure for our Clubhouse members is to discover the True Meaning of Christmas. When Pete receives a gift from his grandmother, his reaction is not what his mother would want it to be. Being told he does not understand the “true meaning of Christmas,” Pete uses the power of the clubhouse team to find the answer. Under the guidance of Father Q, Pete and the Clubhouse members travel back in time to the Nativity to find the answer.
Beautifully illustrated on every page, kids and adults alike will learn the story of Christmas, the reason why we give gifts, and how we should appreciate the gifts we receive today.

Every child will enjoy this story throughout the year, but especially during the Christmas season.
