The Complete Children's Liturgy Book: Liturgies of the World for Years A, B, C
This is one of the most used books in my library. This comprehensive book contains complete liturgies of the word for all three liturgical years, cycles A, B and C organized according to the liturgical calendar. The book's wonderful introduction gives a great overview of the nature and function of the Liturgy of the Word for children and describes the order used in the book.  For each Sunday, the following items are included: Introduction, Sign of the Cross, Lighting of the Candles, "Sorry", Gloria, Gospel Acclamation, Gospel reading, Discussion, Activity, Creed and Closing Prayer. The bonus feature of the book is a great illustration/activity that can be reproduced each week. These activities are more than just coloring pages. Many are crafts, activities, paper dolls, worksheets and much more.  I would recommend that this book be used not only by catechists, but also by parents looking to make the Sunday Liturgy of the Word truly come alive in their own homes. I refer to this reference frequently. You'll be happy that you invested in this resource for your students and for your own family!
