Catholic Encyclopedia for Children
By Ann Ball with Julianne M. Will
Fascinating stories and captivating illustrations delight children as they discover and explore the basics of the Catholic Church! Here are:
*The great people and events of the Bible
*The life and message of Jesus
*The history of the early Church
*Lives of the saints
*Fundamental Catholic beliefs and practices
This kid-friendly resource is the ideal read-aloud text for kids in kindergarten through second-grade. It’s one that has third- and fourth-graders happily proclaiming, “I can read it myself!”
Unlike most encyclopedias, the format is similar to a storybook, with information presented in a topical style rather than alphabetically. Whether they’re listening or reading, youngsters will keep an eye out for “Icthus,” the friendly fish who acts as their guide throughout.
Parents, grandparents, and godparents: This is a perfect First Holy Communion, Christmas, or birthday gift. Librarians, catechists, classroom, and homeschool teachers: This is the solid, Catholic – entertaining! – resource you’ve been looking for.
