Description


Gifts were piled high for 5-year-old Imelda\'s birthday. Imelda was delighted, but still she asked, \"I was wondering if I could have just one more present.\" \"Greedy girl \" laughed her father. Unfortunately, her parents could not give her this one present--Our Lord in Holy Communion. But Imelda decided to ask Our Lord Himself. What would He reply? This book gives the answer and tells how little Imelda came to be the Patroness of First Communicants.
