Reviews - What do customers think about Making Things Right: The Sacrament of Reconciliation?
Wrong age group Oct 5, 2008
I bought this to use with my 2nd grade CCD class, but I'm afraid it may be a bit too advanced for them. It's not something I can read during a classtime. It will probably be a good resource to give me the right language to reach the children on various different subjects. However, I think it is more suitable for children over 8 years old, even though the back cover states it is recommended for ages 8-12. Or maybe as a good reader for a child with his/her parents.
I do like that it has a Study Guide in the back with questions for each chapter to prompt further discussion with children.
definitly got the book right May 25, 2006
It's an excellent book. Perfect for children preparing for their first confession. Simple, clear and uncomplicated with plenty of child activities, and excellent parent/catechist notes
Great for Home or Class May 8, 2000
"Making Things Right" does a great job bring the complexities of the Sacrament of Reconciliation down to a child's level of understanding. I liked its workbook set up because it lets the children test their knowledge. The simple drawings also make great coloring book pages. The best part of this book, however, was its sequence about the actual Rite of Reconciliation. It explains the steps clearly so that the child isn't as intimidated when he or she goes in to make his or her first penance.
