I'm looking for a good Eastern Catholic catechism, of a similar or better quality to the one on the Vatican's website. Is "Christ our Pascha" (published by the Ukrainian Catholics) the best there is, or does someone have a better suggestion?

I have a degree in theology, so any level of complexity is OK for me. But could somebody also suggest perhaps a good one for children?

God bless!

In what language?

"Christ our Pascha" for instance is supposed to be published in English in a few months, but hasn't been yet.

When our children were very young, we used Give Thanks to the Lord: A Catechism for Children from The Committee for Ukrainian Christian Education. Although not a catechism, per se, we've also liked the Bless Us, O Lord series from Eastern Christian Publications (Vol. 1: My First Prayers, Vol. 2: Understanding My Prayers, Vol. 3: My Daily Prayers).

English please. Wasn't aware that CoP isn't in English yet, do you know if the original text is good?

I would recommend the Light for Life series. It is a three part Catechism prepared for the Eastern Catholic bishops in the United States. It is easy to read and is very orthodox.

You can get them from God with Us Publications here [store.godwithusbooks.org]

Glory to Jesus Christ!
Yes we use the three part Light for Life at our parish for adult classes and for those adults preparing for baptism or transfer of Church.
I also highly recommend the series.
