Welcome back to EBYR All Over, a Friday roundup of all the EBYR-related news, reviews, interviews, and other interesting online content we can gather in a given week.
News from Eerdmans & Elsewhere
- Waking Brain Cells reviewed The Amazing Age of John Roy Lynch, calling it “[a]n important book focused on an important figure in a dynamic time in American history. . . . [It] will inform new audiences about the potential for both progress and defeat.”
- The Amazing Age of John Roy Lynch was also named “Book of the Day” by Anastasia Suen.
- The Yes and — you guessed it — The Amazing Age of John Roy Lynch were featured in the Catholic Courier’s summer reading list for kids. The Yes is a “quirky story accompanied with equally interesting illustrations,” says reviewer Regina Lordan, and “[s]hy and overly cautious children will benefit from this unique book’s message of believing in yourself and ignoring the naysayers and inner ‘no.'” In The Amazing Age of John Roy Lynch, “the intentionally colorful and whimsical illustrations wonderfully accompany this story of a particularly cruel and dark part of American history.”
- Just for Today — Bimba Landmann’s rendering of the “daily decalogue” of Saint John XXIII — was reviewed by Our Sunday Visitor. “Each reflection,” writes Gretchen Crowe, “is beautiful and thoughtful — a mini examination of conscience to recite in the quiet of morning before the rush of the day begins. And in this children-friendly format, it’s a reflection the whole family easily can take part in.”
