The Body and Friendship - Level 4, Book 1
This book teaches how friendships are the icing on the cake of life. They can be casual or deep. Children learn to approach friendships both as a gift to enjoy and a gift to give away. They learn to be “for” another person, interested in the good of the other person. Good human friendships mirror the friendship we have with Jesus.
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.
