Overview Short stories, crafts, games, and traditional decorations that are classroom tested, teacher approved and loved by kids! If you teach in Catholic schools or CCD classes, you'll need this book.
Publishers Description With the same classroom-tested style that made our Big Book of Ideas for Children's Faith Formation so popular, this book shows you step-by-step how to make learning fun for children ages 3 to 8, and beyond. Your favorite characters from the first book return to lead us through Advent, Christmas, Lent, Easter, and a few secular holidays, too. Short stories, crafts, games, and traditional decorations remind them of the time-honored customs of the season. Prayers and devotions -- some new, some traditional -- keep all the fun centered on faith, and might just become lifetime habits. If you teach in Catholic schools or CCD classes, you'll wonder how you ever got along without this book. If you're a homeschooler, this is just the help you've been looking for. If you're a parent or grandparent looking for some rainy-day fun, here's fun you can feel good about.

Excellent Resource Jan 14, 2008
I had been looking for a resource to add to our homeschool curriculum that would follow the liturgical year. We have enjoyed many of the simple enriching activities while learning more about saints/important people and our faith.
Well organized Oct 19, 2007
I bought this book because I like it when our family has some sort of Catholic faith item to discuss at dinner. We were using 365 days of Saints and talking about the saint for that day, but this book is so well organized that I can look up new facts and traditions to bring to our life. I have two older children and two babies, so this book is great for all. I'm just a mom, so probably won't do the little book projects etc, but glad to have them for a reference. I like the organization by season and liturgical year and that there is something for every month.

A great way to help teach your child Catholic Traditions Jan 19, 2007
I love this book. It is very helpful in teaching my child about the Faith, Traditions, and Sacraments of the Catholic Church. The book also is divided into great sections based on the Saints, Sacraments, Feast Days and Holy Days. They also break the book down into months of the year to develope awareness of the events and signifigance of each month. The reading materials and activities are great!
A learning experience for the whole family Jan 11, 2007
This was a great book and it gave me a great "plan" to follow in educating my children about the catholic faith and it also provided great ideas on family projects that we could do to celebrate and understand the deeper meaning of many catholic customs and traditions.
