SAN FRANCISCO, August 16, 2010 – Ignatius Press and Magnificat have joined forces to launch a new line of beautifully illustrated, high quality, Catholic children’s books. These charming books will capture the imagination of children of various ages through delightful full-color illustrations, exciting stories from the Bible and lives of the saints, and simple yet powerful prayers.
Books for children of this quality are hard to come by – and when Ignatius Press discovered these books, published by Magnificat in France, they knew that they would be appreciated by parents in United States.
The first eight books of this series will be available in October 2010, featuring a variety of types of books for children of different ages. Three sturdy board books, “My First Prayers for My Family,” “My First Prayers for Christmas,” and “The Bible for Little Ones,” are geared towards young children. Two beautiful hardcover books, “John Mary Vianney: The Holy Cure of Ars” and “Bernadette: The Little Girl from Lourdes,” are perfect for older children and feature lovely watercolor illustrations and engaging text about these two treasured saints. Two other books, “The Adventures of Lupio, Volume 1: The Adventures and Other Stories,” and “The Illustrated Gospel for Children,” have fun, youthful but tasteful stories told in a comic book style. There is also the first volume in a series of coloring books entitled “Pictures from the Gospels: A Coloring Book.”
Ignatius Press is excited to partner with Magnificat, the publisher of the popular devotional, pocket size magazine that features daily Mass readings, meditations, and morning and evening prayers, to publish this new line of Catholic children’s books. Ignatius Press is well known as the primary English-language publisher of Pope Benedict XVI’s books. Ignatius also publishes several best-selling children’s catechisms, such as the popular “Faith and Life” series, and is a partner of Bethlehem Books. Their experience and success with other children’s products makes Ignatius Press confident that these new children’s books will have a wide appeal to Catholic families and children.
Anthony Ryan, Marketing Director for Ignatius Press, says, “Ignatius Press is honored and excited to be working with Magnificat to publish this new line of such high quality, beautifully designed Catholic books for children that have that wonderful combination of inspiring, informative text with such lovely artwork. Magnificat has earned a very high reputation in the USA since they launched their incredibly popular monthly worship aid, “Magnificat,” and they have been publishing award-winning books in France for decades. We are very confident at Ignatius Press that this new collaboration with Magnificat will fill a real need for many more beautiful, outstanding Catholic books for children that will be greatly appreciated by the millions of Catholics, young and old, in North America.”
When the books are available in October 2010, there will be several ways to purchase them. Ignatius Press will distribute the books to the general trade, through their catalogues and online at www.ignatius.com
Magnificat will also be selling their books exclusively to their subscriber base.
Review copies of the books will be available in October. Anthony Ryan is available to give interviews which will provide a preview of this new series. For more information, or to schedule an interview, please contact:
