This presentation was developed as part of Catechesis of the Good Shepherd (Defined on the CGS website as, “an approach to the religious formation of children [that] is rooted in the Bible, the liturgy of the church, and the educational principles of Maria Montessori.”). They are suitable for children up to about age 10, although older siblings are welcome, too.
