This item received 4 stars overall. Great Lenten Family Activity Resource

Lent and Easter in the Domestic Church: Activities to Celebrate the Catholic Liturgical Seasons is written by Catherine and Peter Fournier and published by Ignatius Press.  I was looking to take Lent a little more seriously last year and wanted to try and find ways to start getting my 2-year old involved so I purchased a copy of this book.
This book had several gems in it.
First, were activities I had not seen in any other liturgical year activity book -- The Lenten Cross with illustrations (similar to a Jesse Tree), which we may try this year and information on the Seder Meal, both what it’s history is and how to have one.   I also liked the depth of information on basic items in language easy to adapt for children, including it’s Family Stations of the Cross.
