This coloring book is designed with families and schools in mind. It was designed to give parents and teachers a teaching aid by which to begin their children’s catechetical instruction at an early age. The pictures are simple to color and full of meaning. As the children color the pictures, the images will stick in their minds. This can be useful for parents or teachers so that learning can continue even when the book is not present.
