A Child's True Story of Jesus Book 1
A Child's True Story of Jesus is more than just a coloring book—the lessons and activities are designed to help children learn their basic prayers and the Mysteries of the Rosary, all within the context of the Gospels and the Mass.
First created in 1928 by Sister Mary Ambrose, a Dominican Sister "Demonstration Teacher," this workbook found its genesis in the Montessorian principle of learning by doing. Here, rather than merely hearing each lesson, the child is encouraged to reinforce what he or she has learned, first by using a picture to repeat the lesson in his or her own words, then by coloring the pictures, and by cutting and assembling the prayers to be glued in the book.
Includes the Our Father, Hail Mary and Glory Be, simplified versions of the Prayer Before a Crucifix, Spiritual Communion, and Acts of Faith, Hope and Love. These help the child to see that there are many ways of talking with God throughout each day, and by making prayer a habit, they can bring Him more closely into their lives.
