Three Brothers and Three Sisters Tote Set--Review

I have recently had the opportunity to review the Three Brothers and Three Sisters Tote Set from The Catholic Company.
The set includes seven books featuring the seven sacraments, an activity card and a Go Fish Sacrament card game. It all comes in a very sturdy little tote perfect for little ones to carry.
My 3, 4, and 7 year old especially enjoyed the books. This seems to be the age that they are geared too. Each book tells about one of the sacraments in a very sweet way.
I loved the illustrations.
The books are perfect for my seven year old to read aloud to her younger siblings, and at the same time helps her review the sacraments for her upcoming First Holy Communion.
The Go Fish Sacrament card game has the cutest illustrations based on the pictures in the books.
They feature each of the sacraments and also different members of the clergy. We have had great discussions about the differences between deacons, priests and bishops because of these cards.
Luke loves playing cards and especially enjoyed the books featuring the three brothers.
Mark is 9 and wasn't interested in the books. They were too "young" for him, but he did love playing cards with the other kids.
3 and 7 year olds both enjoyed the whole set!
Another activity I used the cards for was to play concentration with Luke (4) and Kim (3).
This is a game they enjoy, and are now beginning to know the names of the sacraments because of the cards.
This would be a great gift for little ones beginning to learn about the Catholic faith.

I was given the Three Brothers and Three Sisters Tote Set in exchange for my honest opinion of the product.
