God Made Everything engages young children in developmentally appropriate activities that nourish their developing relationship to God and others by weaving together essential faith content and academic topics. Print materials and online resources provide teachers, catechists, and parents with everything needed to help young children learn Scripture, prayerful practices, and the habits of a faithful Catholic in conjunction with academic topics. The God Made Everything series helps inspire God’s youngest disciples to live our Catholic faith.
The God Made Everything series has been found to be in conformity with the Catechism of the Catholic Church by the Ad Hoc Committee to Oversee the Use of the Catechism.
