This book allows children to contemplate the wonder of the human body, leading to the notion of “self,” body and spirit. The body reveals the person within. The order of creation is explored, so that children appreciate the special role of humans. Some things, like praying and pretending, are unique to humans and make us different from all the other animals. Children will understand God’s love for his creation, and the special dignity of being human.
The Theology of the Body is a positive, beautiful approach to the truth of the body and its meaning. In a culture where the body is considered “an enemy to freedom,” Saint John Paul’s Theology of the Body is necessary more than ever. The Body Matters lesson books series teaches the truths about the body in an accessible, age-appropriate way. It is a great resource for parents, Faith Formation programs and Catholic schools to help children see the sacredness of the body.
