The Body Speaks a Language - Level 5, Book 2
This book shows that the actions of the body convey truths, as in a handshake or a smile. But the body can also convey a falsehood, as when Judas betrayed Jesus with a kiss. Children learn that manners are a way of showing kindness and respect with bodily actions. Mary and Jesus show us how love is expressed with the body.
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.
