Liana over at Working to be Worthy asked me to review her new e-book. l was more than pleased to do so and overjoyed. I wish I had a resource like this when my kids were little. This is a well written book about celebrating the liturgical year with your child with ideas for activities and crafts from Advent to Christmas to Lent, Easter and Ordinary Time. The written from a Catholic perspective, but has many ideas that will appeal to Christians of all denominations. I wish I had a book like this when my kids were younger.
Liana has a back round in Psychology, and is a Nationally Certified School Psychologist. As such she understands child development and how your child thinks. She has worked with children of all ages and has geared this book for those up to age 5.
I particularly loved what Liana had to say about Christmas. She writes about reducing materialism during Christmas. I am a big fan of the simple Christmas, so this was right up my alley. Liana, also touches on teaching your child how to dress for church and the importance of doing so.
“In our culture, dressing in formal clothing is a sign of respect.Liana does not neglect the parent either. Each chapter end with a special section for the parent’s spiritual growth. You can get Liana’s her book Growing (up) in Faith here where 10% of the proceeds go to Angel Care or if you are an e-book reader you can get it on Amazon for Kindle. At $4.95 it is a great value.
Christmas and Easter usually inspire people to wear their best
clothes. Many families will buy special outfits particularly for the
season. It is worth considering why most people do not wear their
“Sunday best” for every Mass”
This book makes a great edition to the family bookshelf and has many ideas that can be incorporated in families of all ages.
