A word from the author
I am writing to introduce you to a new and exciting resource
for your school.
"The Little Flower Books, Set One and Set Two",
are unique emergent readers, which are designed to initiate religious
discussion whilst teaching children to read. The idea for the books
evolved from concerns about the availability and appropriateness of religious
literature for children at the early childhood level. So far the response
from Catholic Schools and other educational institutions Australia wide has
been overwhelming and encouraging.
As a teacher and Religious Education Co-ordinator with over
20 years experience I realise the potential for the use of such a resource in
early childhood classrooms. It is intended that the books will
be used as home readers in an attempt to initiate religious dialogue amongst
family members. Many young families today are 'un-churched' for a variety
of reasons and consideration needs to be given to other ways of getting the
gospel message directly in to the home. This is just another attempt to
meet that need. The books are inspired by the theology of St Therese of
Lisieux, focusing on the simple connectedness children have to their creator.
There are 50 books in the complete series and Set One has
been available for a short time now. With the help of publisher Connor
Court Publishing I am pleased to be able to now offer you Set Two.
Depending on the success of this set we are hoping to make the whole series
available in the near future.
If you would like to purchase Set One or pre-order Set Two
(which will be available in July) please complete the order form below and fax
or mail it to Connor Court Publishing or order it directly online by clicking
I look forward to working with you and your school community
in implementing the Complete 5 set series to your early childhood classrooms.
