Useful, easy-to-use guidance, resources, and reproducible pages help new and veteran children’s leaders interpret the meaning of the Christian year for children from preschool through elementary age. Each chapter includes:

  • Learning activities such as art, writing, crafts, drama, stories, and music
  • Reproducible pages including puzzles, litanies, songs, and readings

In addition to chapters on the Christian year as a whole and Sundays (mini-Easters), the book is organized by the following seasons and holy days:

  • Advent and Christmas
  • Epiphany
  • Season after Epiphany (Ordinary Time)
  • Ash Wednesday, Lent, and Holy Week
  • Eastertide
