Catholic children’s stories can also be learned through various children coloring, puzzles and activity books. Grandparents and Godparents additionally think that Catholic books for children are an incredible gifting option for birthdays and special Sacrament events.
If you are a parent of a growing young child then start with simple toddler bible stories, then move on to other Catholic board books and short stories which teach Christianity learning in simple terms. Incorporate these into the bed time stories. As your child grows older, start adding the phrases of bible, the catechism, enriching words from all sources in your stories. Take the time to teach your children simple characteristics of that divine almighty. The complexity of the catholic books chosen can grow with your child’s age and wisdom.
Ending day with bed time stories every day leaves a lasting impact on children’s mind and helps their development.
You’re helping your child become familiar with the rich catholic culture and the value of books. This also shapes your child’s literacy skills, helping him or her go on to read successfully later in life and also be familiar with Christianity from a young age onwards.
Reading stories sparks your child’s imagination, creativity and helps with brain evolution. Interesting illustrations and word patterns can get your child talking about what he’s seeing and thinking, and help him understand the catholic literature better.
Telling stories can also be a safe way to explore strong emotions, which can help your child relate with the event you are talking about. Sharing stories with your child doesn’t mean you have to read.
Just by looking at books with your child, pictures explain better than words, for example a child will be able to understand descending of angels better with a pictorial representation of the same than by just going by the words.
Reading stories with children has benefits for the parents as well. This special time together promotes bonding between them and their children and helps to build their relationship, laying the groundwork for the child’s later social and interpersonal skills.
It is said that when holy texts and sacred literatures are recited, they spread an aura of positive energy in the environment thus giving positive vibes to your children as well. So next time when your child demands for a story from you, just grab a book of prayers or what better than the holy bible itself. Just grab it, read it, share it and enjoy with your kids.
