Shownotes

This week’s guest is children’s book author Claudia Cangilla McAdam. Claudia shares about how she got started writing books for kids and why she began to write faith-based books especially.

One of Claudia’s newest books is The Real Presence, a story that teaches children about the real presence of Jesus in the Eucharist. Claudia discusses how she got the idea for this book and what it was like to work with her illustrator.

Claudia is also author of Louie’s Lent, a beautiful story about how a young boy discerns what he will do to observe Lent.  All of Claudia’s works are wonderful resources for parents, teachers, and catechists. You can learn more about Claudia and her work at ClaudiaMcadam.com.
