Curriculum for Lent       

Catechetical instruction for children based on the Sunday readings of the Christian Church during Lent. Lesson plans include a short exegesis of the readings, application to a children’s book, and the virtue that is common to the Bible readings and the children’s book, activities to extend the understanding of the virtue, practical advice for incorporating the virtue in an age-appropriate manner. Examples of the children’s books include such favorites as Tolstoy’s The Children Wiser Than Their Elders and No, David!
