10 Commandments Explained
As children begin to question more about their faith, use The 10 Commandments Explained to help them understand the basic beliefs held by the Catholic Church. This guide examines each commandment and shows children the purpose of the commandments, assisting them as they begin to go beyond the surface, and start to delve more deeply into their faith.
Each chapter is based on one of the Ten Commandments and explores its deeper meanings, beyond face value. Quotes and prayers from various saints and theologians give more depth to the discussion. Reflection and a notebook section conclude the chapters and provide ways for children to figure out how they can keep the commandments in their own lives.
The 10 Commandments Explained explores the Ten Commandments and gives children a more thorough understanding of what the commandments entail, which offers them a deeper understanding of their faith and God.
Ideal for ages 8-12.

"This series by Silvia Vecchini is a valuable catechetical aid for parents and teachers, and a smart, approachable resource for young people to help them not only know, but understand and live our Catholic faith. In The Creed Explained, The Ten Commandments Explained, and Works of Mercy Explained, Vecchini skillfully weaves together a rich, yet focused treasury of Scripture and Tradition, wisdom from the popes and the saints, Church documents, the prayers of the Mass, Church history, and more to thoroughly explain and celebrate the fundamentals of our faith. Each book also includes reflection questions, prayers, Scripture meditations, and action points to help young people open themselves up to experiencing the authentic joy and freedom that comes from a living relationship with Christ. Parents, teachers, and youth ministers can benefit from the style and approach of this series, which is a perfect springboard for group discussions, activities, service projects, and guided prayer experiences. A true celebration of faith, these books are a solid addition to home, classroom and parish libraries."
