Stories open doors – even into complex social dilemmas – even for middle schoolers.
This book offers fifty-five wonderful stories from around the world to help young Catholics connect with the social, environmental, and economic problems of children around the globe. It encourages them to accept and think of these children as family, as sisters and brothers. This is a great resource for catechetical leaders, catechists, parents, and Catholic school teachers.
Topics included are child labor, community and family, discrimination, creativity, education and denial of education, environmental issues, hunger, refuges, homlessness, water, and more.
