Overview

Lolek is a celebration of the childhood of Pope John Paul II. He was a little boy who, despite tragedy and oppression in his young life during World War II, was a shining example for his peers and adults alike. Pope John Paul II was a world class freedom fighter, campaigning for world peace as a human rights advocate and defender of the oppressed. During his combat against world poverty, he taught that every life is precious no matter one's nationality or religious belief, whether one is rich or poor, young or old. One of Lolek's greatest achievements was the downfall of Communism in Europe. He encouraged people to feel their own power, and the power of faith led to the freedom of half a continent. Children 4-12 years.

    The Papa for All

    What a wonderful way to present this Holy Man to the younger generation. He seems so real when you learn about him from his early days. John Paul suffered so many losses throughout his life but still remained faithful to the Church. His strong devotion to Mary gave hime the courage to overcome all the challenges he faced. He showed us how to live and in the end, he even showed us how to die. He was an amazing gift to the world.

    The story is beautifully written and the illustrations are gorgeous!
