Catechesis of the Good Shepherd.
Paperback, 6 x 9, 128 pages.
The Catechesis of the Good Shepherd is an approach to the religious
formation of children. It is rooted in the Bible, the liturgy of the
church, and the educational principles of Maria Montessori. Children
gather in an "atrium," a room prepared for them, which contains simple
yet beautiful materials that they use.
