A book that teaches kids about church

My daughter, Dcs. Mary Moerbe, has published another children’s book:  Whisper, Whisper:  Learning about Church.  It teaches children, aged 4 and younger, what is going on in the worship service (with special reference to the liturgy) and helps them participate in it.

The book uses a rhyming text for the children and wonderful art by Martha Aviles, but it also has commentary and sidebars giving tips for parents.   You can “look inside” the book at the Amazon link.  More details after the jump.

This is a quite brilliant and helpful work, and I say that not just because it’s written by my daughter.  The tendency is often to kick children out of church–whether in a nursery or some kind of “children’s church”–and then we wonder why they don’t attend when they are older.  Our children are children of God, and they can learn to worship Him at a very young age, building habits and behaviors that will be a foundation for the rest of their lives.

My daughter’s new book: Teaching kids about church

Do you have little kids who squirm and whine and have no idea what is going on in church?  Then you need the new book by my daughter, Deaconness Mary Moerbe,  entitled Whisper, Whisper: Learning About Church.

It’s a children’s book, with wonderful illustrations by Martha Aviles and a charming rhyming text.  But it also includes suggestions in the margins for how parents can help their children take part in the Divine Service.

Hers came out the same day mine did, which makes me very proud.  More about her book after the jump. [Read more...]
