Die Purpurnen Kommen! (The Purples are Coming!), by Ilow and Sheri Roque
$4.99 for iPad, 41 pages
A delightful, beautifully illustrated long verse poem, The Purples are Coming! enables children 9 and under to develop a love of reading while gaining a deep appreciation of Catholic faith and virtues. Thrilled at the alarm signaling the arrival of spring (“THE PURPLES ARE COMING!”), a humorous band of meadowland animal pals sets off on a most unusual journey. They travel to the little chapel by the pond to see the purples at the very peak of their bloom, and meet a wise old ram, Father Fred, who teaches them important lessons about prayer, apostleship, and the love of God. Maybe prayer is not so complicated after all.
