Today I Made My First Reconciliation by Dianne Ahern, is both a storybook and a keepsake book written to help children, their friends, and their family to love and practice this Sacrament.
Best friends Maria and Riley just seem to get deeper and deeper into trouble after they accidentally break a window then lie to their parents about it. Their guilt makes them shy away from their parents' love and causes lots of discomfort. As they search for relief they learn from parish priests, teachers, and family members about sin, repentance, forgiveness, God's grace, reconciliation, and absolution.

Today I Made My First Reconciliation by Dianne Ahern also contains a section entitled Memories of My First Reconciliation provides space to describe this special day and the importance of this sacrament.
