Item description for Child's Guide to the Holy Days (Childs Guide) by Kathy Dellatorre O'Keefe...

This colorful book explains, in simple language, the sometimes confusing matter of Holy Days of Obligation. It discusses each of the holy days and gives the scriptural basis for each. Children will gain a better understanding of why and how the Catholic Church celebrates these days, as they become involved in the actual stories of how these days evolved. Holy days include: the Immaculate Conception, Christmas, Mary, Mother of God, the Ascension of the Lord, the Assumption, and All Saints' Day. The book also touches on the meaning of an obligation, the varieties that might appear from diocese to diocese, as well as Sunday being a Holy Day of Obligation. This charming addition to the Child's Guide series, the first to treat this topic, can be used as a resource by: * Catholic elementary schools and pre-schools * parish religious education programs* home schoolers * Catholic parents and grandparents, who read religious books to their children, or buy these books for them

Reviews - What do customers think about Child's Guide to the Holy Days?

Thoroughly 'kid friendly'  Jul 10, 2007
The collaborative work of author Kathy DellaTorre O'Keefe and illustrator Anne Catharine Blake, the "Child's Guide To The Holy Days" was published by the Paulist Press to teach children ages 5 to 9 about the meaning and significance of special and recurring occasions within the Catholic Church to commemorate and celebrate of 'Holy Days of Obligation in reference to the Immaculate Conception, the Assumption, the Ascension, All Saint's Day, Christmas, and the Virgin Mary. Young readers will be able to learn about the special obligations associated with each significant day, the religious legacy of Catholic traditions, and the differences among dioceses that can occur in each holy day's observance. Thoroughly 'kid friendly', the "Child's Guide To The Holy Days" is especially recommended for family, parochial school, and parish library collections for young children.
A Needed Resource  Jun 8, 2007
Author Kathy DellaTorre O'Keefe has given parents and teachers a wonderful resource for teaching our children about the Holy Days that highlight the liturgical calender of our Catholic Church.

In simple language, O'Keefe orients the reader to the meaning of "holy day of obligation" and "diocese", explaining the sometimes shifting nature of our celebration of the six Holy Days currently celebrated in the United States. In story form, she weaves descriptions and dates for each of the Holy Days, relating them to their scriptural roots.

Wonderful illustrations by Anne Catharine Blake compliment O'Keefe's uplifting tone. This book, aimed at readers ages five through nine, reads more like a storybook than a textbook. It is a wonderful way to share our Catholic traditions with any child and should be a resource in every Catholic family and school library.
