 Our Description

Beth Branigan McNamara
Sue Robinson
Anne E. Neuberger

With the same classroom-tested style that made our Big Book of Ideas for Children's Faith Formation so popular, this book shows you step-by-step how to make learning fun for children ages 3 to 8, and beyond. Your favorite characters from the first book return to lead you through Advent, Christmas, Lent, Easter, and a few secular holidays, too. Short stories, crafts, games, and traditional decorations remind them of the time-honored customs of the season. Prayers and devotions - some new, some traditional - keep all the fun centered on faith, and might just become lifetime habits.

If you teach in Catholic schools or CCD classes, you'll wonder how you ever got along without this book. If you're a homeschooler, this is just the help you've been looking for. If you're a parent or grandparent looking for some rainy-day fun, here's fun you can feel good about.

This item received 4 stars overall. Great homeschool or supplemental resource

The Big Book of Catholic Customs and Traditions for Children's Faith Formation is the best all encompassing book of Children's Liturgical activities I have seen to date.  Published by Our Sunday Visitor, it goes through the whole liturgical calendar, providing not only a summary of each month as far as dedication for the month, liturgical colors (useful if you have a home altar) and major saint feast days, but activities, recipes, craft projects, and stories and discussion starters, as well!

While going through the liturgical year, it also includes many everyday activities that are excellent for making sure that you aren't missing teaching your littles some of the basics.   There are some reproducible pages (though not many).   One of the things that I like best about this book is that it includes several secul Full Review...

This item received 4 stars overall. Share the faith with your kids in a fun way.


I recently purchased the Big Book of Catholic Customs and Traditions for Children's Faith Formation to get some fun ideas that I could use for the Kindergarten Religious Ed. Class I'm teaching this Fall, and also to get some ideas to help my own children grow in their faith.
The nice thing about this book is that its format makes it easy to use in a classroom setting or at home.  The introduction gives a short list of tips for sharing customs and traditio Full Review...

This item received 5 stars overall. The 'Big Book': Fantastic Resource for the Parent Teaching the Faith

 I love this book.  The Big Book of Catholic Customs and Traditions for Children's Faith Formation is just what this mom needs to teach my three year old about the Catholic faith.  If you are like me, then you have all these great plans to teach the faith in these really creative and exciting ways.... but when push comes to shove you just don't know how to go about it.

That's where the 'Big Book' comes in.  The book has practical and entertaining activities for kids of all ages. It is separated by months and has an additional 'anytime' section as well.  It provides pictures (I am such a visual person) and the instructions are totally manageable.  My three year old has really enjoyed the projects we have done so far and I know we will use it for years to come because as she gets older I can utilize some of the options differ Full Review...

This item received 5 stars overall. A Wonderful Book For Planning Your Liturgical Year

As a Catholic convert, and a mother with small children, I've been passionate about learning all that I can about the traditions and celebrations that ocur throughout the liturgical year.  I'd spent the last year trying to come up with feast day ideas that would make the liturgical year come alive for our daughters, and had scoured the internet and the books that we already had for ideas.  I wanted to learn more about traditions that, as a convert, I wasn't familiar with.  
When I was given the chance to review The Big Book of Catholic Customs and Traditions, I was thrilled.  Our cross country move this summer meant the book had to chase us across the country with the rest of our mail, but when it finally arrived I was thrilled.  I was even more excited when the book not only met, but exceeded my expec Full Review...

This item received 5 stars overall. Amazing Catholic Resource

The book Big Book of Catholic Customs is an awesome addition to any Catholic families book shelf or Catholic teacher. The book is divided into months and seasons and follows the Liturgical Calendar. The popular Saint Feast Days and Holy Days of Obligation are highlighted and discussed from the perspective of different countries customs and traditions. It is a fantastic way to incorporate learning about other cultures in your religious education. Another great quality of the book is that it contains many worksheets and crafts that can be copied so each family member can have their own chance to learn and grow individually and together. 

My family loved that we recieved this wonderful resource right before the start of Advent. We were able to incorporate many new traditions into our seasonal routine that I know we will forever include in our celebrations. I have b Full Review...
