Books, DVD aim to ready preschoolers for learning Catholic faith
Published: May 21, 2008
WASHINGTON (CNS) -- After nearly 30 years of teaching religious education to children ages 3 to 14, Peggy Olds of Willowbrook, Ill., was convinced of one thing. Although parents spend a lot of time teaching their preschoolers their ABCs, numbers and other information needed to prepare them for first grade, she said, they don't do the same to ready their children for learning the basics of their Catholic faith. Olds hopes to fill that gap with her "Questions for God" series, which aims to tell salvation history in a way that children can learn and retain it as easily as their ABCs. Through 10 books of 16 pages each and a 50-minute DVD, the series takes on children's questions from "God, Who Are You?" through "God, How Did Jesus Save Us?" to "God, When Will We Be With You?" The DVD and book series combination costs $54.95 or the DVD alone costs $14.95. Orders may be placed by phone at: (866) 774-2001, or online at: www.questionsforgodbooks.com.
