The Body Tells a Story - Level 1 Book 2
This book teaches how the body gives and receives gifts, and is itself a gift! Through the senses, the body receives gifts like favorite foods, beautiful music, grace in the sacraments, and presents on our birthdays. The body also gives gifts like hugs, art projects, a home run in softball, and helping with chores. The body itself is a gift from the greatest gift-giver, God, given to us to be a gift of love to others. Understanding their giftedness transforms children’s lives.
The Theology of the Body is a positive, beautiful approach to the truth of the body and its meaning. In a culture where the body is considered “an enemy to freedom,” Saint John Paul’s Theology of the Body is necessary more than ever. The Body Matters lesson books series teaches the truths about the body in an accessible, age-appropriate way. It is a great resource for parents, Faith Formation programs and Catholic schools to help children see the sacredness of the body. Here you can find Saint John Paul’s teachings on the body rendered in language accessible to children, with beautiful illustrations, practical examples and solid Catholic theology.
