This past Sunday was the feast of Pentecost, and it was also a celebration in our family because Robbie was baptized! We'd selected the dates months ago, and as the day approached, a little package arrived at our door-- it was a copy of "First Prayers" illustrated by Tasha Tudor, sent to Robbie by my good friend Patricia (who you may remember from last week's installment of Tasha Tuesday!)
I had not seen this book before, but it is so sweet. It is very small, perfect for little hands. And it contains short prayers with accompanying illustrations of children and animals.
Going through Tasha's bibliography, there are several religious themed books, including a book of hymns and of course her Christmas themed books like "Take Joy". So if you're ever looking for a special gift for a baptism, confirmation, first communion, etc. I think there are several Tasha books that are appropriate. Tasha for every occasion! ;)
As for Robbie's special day--- I couldnt resist getting him a little bonnet to wear with his blue and white romper, and sweet white shoes. That silly kid--- his feet are already too big for the little infant shoes! And when it came to his actual baptism, he slept through most of it, although he was a little put out when he got the water on his head.
It was such a special day, and I'm so pleased that we'll have this little book that he can look at and one day read, and remember "you were given this for your baptism!"
Wishing you a happy Tasha Tuesday!~
