Our original Weekday Liturgies for Children book was lost. When I showed our teachers that we now have a copy of the revised edition, they were so excited I wished I had a videocamera. Sr Domicele Yestonsky, SND Grade 4 Teacher, St. Thomas Aquinas School, Cleveland, OH
I like the book because it is easy to follow and the language is simple so children can read and relate to the liturgies. Shari Wynn First Grade Teacher, St. Thomas Aquinas School, Cleveland, OH
The Weekday Liturgies with Children book has helped me plan wonderful masses with my middle school students. The book puts the Gospel into kid-friendly language that allows them to understand and reflect upon God's word. The readings are easy for the students to read aloud without frustration or confusion. I would recommend this book to any religion teacher.
