The Big Book of Catholic Customs and Traditions for Children's Faith Formation - So much fun, kids will forget they're learning about the Faith! 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.
