In the Beginning: The Story of Genesis and Earth Activities for Childrenby Michael J. Caduto
In In the Beginning, renowned educator, storyteller, ecologist, poet and musician Michael Caduto has written a one-of-a-kind book that offers young people a deeper experience of the Bible, showing how it can become a guide for living in a close, connected way with all of Creation. Each chapter begins with a Bible story about Creation, retold by the author. The stories are followed by reflections about the nature of Creation and the wisdom that can help to guide our relationship with God's Earth. Finally, easy-to-follow activities, including instructions and a list of the needed materials, flow from the subjects found in the stories.
In the Beginning can be read and used directly by children in the middle-to-upper elementary years, ages 8 to 12, and beyond. It can be shared by teachers, within families, among friends and across the generations.
In the Beginning will be a unique and valuable resource for helping children see how God's word, and the richness of nature, reveal that every part of creation is sacred.
Ideal for use by:
--parochial schools, synagogues, Christian-based primary schools
--religion instructors at churches
