Raising kids to completely understand the Catholic faith without question is impossible. No matter how much you prepare them for the world and it’s non-Christian views, they will always come back home with a question about something that pertains to the faith. In my experience, I have always been able to ask a priest or visit Catholic Answers to help me find the truth to those tough questions which I’m not able to explain.
Being a mom of 9 inquisitive children, who are either adults or growing into adults, has taught me a lot about the Catholic faith. One thing I have learned is that it’s never too early to start preparing children for the tough questions (age appropriate questions – that is). And one of the toughest questions in our society today is, “Is abortion okay?”
So today I want to tell you about a book which is a new addition to our home library. It’s a homeschool (or school) book that is meant to teach children (K-2 grades) about the importance of life, even unborn life.
This topic can be a bit touchy and hard to teach to young children, but I feel this program does a good job of hitting the preciousness of new life without diving into topics which are too adult for them.
Life is Precious is a program created by ALL (American Life League) which uses children’s books as a launching pad to explain the preciousness of human life in all stages. It uses books like:
- Angel in the Waters — By Regina Doman
- On the Night You Were Born — By Nancy Tillman
- Horton Hears a Who — By Dr. Seuss
- A child’s uniqueness
- Guardian angels
- Protecting life
- Standing up for what you believe
- and much more…
It’s loaded with coloring pages and art projects! And you know these are some of my favorite things!
Here are images of the Baby’s Development Board which my children and I made:
The Life is Precious program is also loaded with many other fun hands-on projects which are centered around these adorable children’s books!
I found the program very adaptable for the various children levels in our home. I used it with all my kids from K to 5th grade. If you are looking for a helpful way to introduce the topic of unborn life, I recommend this program.
