    A continuation of Cavelletti's earlier work, this volume focuses on the child from 6-12 and the religious needs most essential to that age group. Building on the experiences of the child from 3-6, the older child is drawn to the theme of covenant between God and mankind, its development throughout salvation history and its final consummation at the end of time.

    Home Catechesis Manual for ages 9-12
    This 200+-page manual provides scripted lessons and material-making patterns for teaching Salvation History. It includes presentations for all the Old Testament covenants (Adam, Noah, Abraham, Moses, David) and their typology. Each covenant is explored through the use of two uniquely creative elements: the Story Box and the Covenant Circle. A Story Box is created for each lesson and includes two and three-dimensional objects that the child and parent use as the story unfolds. The Covenant Circle ia a follow-up work that beautifully synthesizes each story with its meaning and typology, providing a hands-on meditation experience for the child that speaks to him through sign and symbol. These lessons require a considerable amount of preparation but the time spent will greatly enrich both the parent and the child.
