It includes a detailed, fully-illustrated walkthrough of each step of the Latin Mass, but is also applicable to the Novus Ordo, especially with recent revisions to the English translation. Pictures and descriptions of the vessels and vestments used in the Mass, as well as a diagram of the “Plan of the Mass,” help little Catholics understand the function and meaning of everything in the Mass.
This missal also contains colorful gospel stories for all Sundays and feast days of the liturgical calendar to engage your child in the Liturgy of the Word: stories such as “The Birth of Jesus” on Christmas Day, “The Wedding Feast at Cana” for the 2nd Sunday after the Epiphany, “Jesus Promises to send the Holy Ghost” on the 4th Sunday of Easter, and over fifty more!
In addition to prayers before and after Holy Communion and Mass, it also has many daily prayers, such as morning and evening prayers; acts of faith, hope, and love; the Stations of the Cross; the Mysteries of the Rosary; a guide to Confession, and more.
Your child will feel involved and part of the Mass, integrated into the Body of Christ and the community of the Church, with the Children’s Missal as his or her aid.

I love the pictures and the prayers. This book give children prayers they can say while at mass as well as guiding them through the mass.
Latin Mass Children;s Missal
This small missal for children, who attend the Traditional Latin Mass, is a reprint of the same book that Neumann Press carried for many years. It actually was first printed by Catholic Book Publishers in the 1950;s and early 1960;s. It is a little gem for children who are learning to pray the TLM. The illustrations are lovely and colorful. The weekly summary of the Sunday Gospel is brief and to the point. I don;t understand the need for an eBook option. The tradition of Catholic publishers was, and actually still is, to provide a special book for First Communicants. Compared to what many of us remember from yesteryear or even see today this is minimalist. Of course, it is better than nothing. Why can'tthe publisher at least offer a choice of black or white covers in softcover and cloth cover? From my experience, the parents and children who faithfully assist at the TLM greatly appreciate elegant books for their prayerful devotion.
Practical hand missal
Purchased for 4 y/o son who wanted his own missal at Mass. Classic illustrations, sound explanations, will be useful for many years to come. Even an adult might learn something from this great resource.
