The book is about the apparent chance encounter between five energetic children and one of God’s beautiful creatures, a brilliant red Cardinal. Their interaction reveals a deeper, more important truth – the spiritual wisdom of sharing and giving to others. The story tells young readers that God calls upon those who are blessed with abundance to share those gifts with those who are without.

Femenella describes “Captain Cardinal and the Frenzied Five” as an engaging book that can be enjoyed on a simple level for its story and illustrations, and for a deeper meaning and prayerful truth – the joy of giving.

“I would hope young readers are drawn closer to God and understand that it is better to give than to receive,” Femenella says. “Further, I hope they understand that it is our responsibility to His work on Earth.”
