- An Introduction Booklet that provides parents with an overview of the contents and how to incorporate Bible history into each of the activities. It was fun to read about the life of St. Jerome and how he impacted the early Church -- there was even a hymn included for all of us to sing together. My daughter's eyes lit up, as she loves to sing!
- A beautiful Lectio Divinia: A Bible Journal -- I can't say enough about this form of Bible reflection. Catholic Family Crate does sell this journal separately online and I think it will be a wonderful Christmas present for many of my relatives.
- Family Prayer and Scripture Time that includes Bible verses in correlation with hands-on activities for the children and Catechism discussion questions in relation to scripture for the older children. My 7-year-old son and 9-year-old daughter loved reading the verses and discussing specific terms and the historical events of the given sections.
- Activity Packs that correspond to Scripture Readings. The little ones enjoyed creating Jonah and the Whale out of a clothespin and foam whale, while the older two are still using the stencils and paper pad to re-create biblical scenes.
