A Byzantine Child's ABC- Day 1 of 31 Days (cover)

wow...I thought that giving myself a month to write this little picture book was generous, but I've been fiddling with the cover for hours, using picasa, picmonkey, google docs, etc....bear with me! It might be interesting, seeing a little book growing day by day. I hope that by the end of the month I will have it finished and I will figure out a way for you to print the finished product from the web officially, not just as a screen capture. 

I can't figure out how to have the pdf actually show up here in the post, but if you are curious, you can click and see the cover below...
a possible text for the facing page.... 
Dear Parents-

This is the first edition of a Byzantine alphabet book that you can print and perhaps laminate for your children's use. 

Most Byzantine Catholic children have never seen a book written especially for them. I wanted to fill in the gap with this book which I hope will be the first-of-many.  My four children enjoy reading Roman-rite Catholic and Orthodox books, but the former does not acknowledge Byzantine spirituality and the latter does not acknowledge Catholic hierarchy. 

May this little book be a bridge! May Christ be glorified!
