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 On the Day You Were Born 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.
On the Day You Were Born is a story about how the Earth prepares for the birth of a new baby. All of creation—animals, air, water, and people—celebrate a new life entering the world. Children listen to the story and are asked to think about how all of nature welcomed them on the day they were born.
