    1. Please note that while the author is a GR friend, I was not asked to provide a review for Catherine's Pascha (in fact, I had already downloaded a Kindle version before Charlotte Riggle accepted my friendship request, and I then proceeded to also purchase a print copy, as the Kindle version was just a bit too hard on my aging eyes). Charlotte Riggle's Catherine's Pascha is a glowing, evocative, and yes, in all ways simply wonderful, informative basic introduction to Orthodox Easter (Pascha) celeb [...]


    2. I realized, when I was looking at the Easter Listopia, that I'd never marked that I'd read my own book! That seemed odd. It also seemed odd to rate my own book. So feel free to skip this review if that seems odd to you, too.When my children were young, I wanted to give them stories about Easter from a child's point of view. There was a sweet Little Critter story by Mercer Mayer, and they read that, and enjoyed it, but it was a saddle-stitched paperback. The book I wanted was a lavishly illustrat [...]


    3. In the interest of full disclosure, I am blessed to call the author a dear friend. However, even if I had no idea who wrote and illustrated this book, I would still love and recommend it. A two-story book - one level is the charming story of Catherine experiencing Pascha, the Orthodox Christian celebration of Easter, told with gentle humor, an eye for the way a child experiences life, and just a touch of explanation of the feast. The second level is the way that each page is framed like an icon [...]


    4. The book contains a story told with a child experiences life of the Orthodox Christian celebration of Easter. The illustrations not only describe the story, but also present a historical Orthodox churches from diverse places of the world. The double images give the book a unique style. I highly recommend this book for those who appreciate traditions, culture and religion.


    5. Catherine's Pascha is a wonderful book to share with the whole family. It's a lovely explanation of Pascha (Orthodox Easter.)


    6. Catherine can't wait for Pascha, the middle of the night Easter celebration at her church. And this year, she is definitely not going to fall asleep and miss Pascha. She'll keep her eyes open all night for the candles and giggles with her best friend. Plus, there's a giant feast afterward! But she's might close her eyes for just a minuteI love this book for two reasons. It's a peek inside how another culture celebrates Easter. But it's foremost, a really amusing story told from a child's perspec [...]



    7. Catherine's Pascha by Charlotte Riggle is the perfect introduction to the Eastern Orthodox Easter celebration. It is written from a child's point of view and her handicapped friend, who's in a wheelchair. Upon their arrival to church in the middle of the night, they participate in a lively vigil of traditional liturgy, prayers, and festivities. The book is beautifully illustrated depicting the ancient orthodox church to real life form. I was impressed with the detailed artwork used to accent the [...]
