Arnie and the New Kid

Pray Me a Story Kit - Series 2


The Pray Me a Story series uses popular children’s books as a springboard for entering into imaginative prayer. Pray Me a Story is designed for use by catechists, religion teachers, parents, grandparents—anyone who prays with children of any age.
This kit includes the hardcover book Arnie and the New Kid and an 8-page booklet to guide the adult with step-by-step instructions on how to share and discuss the story. After hearing the story, the child is gently guided into the scene to meet Jesus and prayerfully speak to him as one friend speaks to another.

This is a story about Arnie and Philip. Philip is new at school and uses a wheelchair. Arnie teases him. Things change one day when Arnie needs help and Philip reaches out to him. As children listen to the story, they think about what it’s like to be Philip and how they might behave differently if they were Arnie.
