Format: Paperback
Late last year, as I began to plan out some faith-based activities for this year, I was given the opportunity to read and review this book.

This book is divided into the 12 months of the year, beginning with January (to me it would have made more sense to begin with Advent, as does the liturgical year, so it would not begin in the middle of Christmas; however, I do understand that in many ways perhaps beginning in January was just easier). There is an additional section at the end for "Special Occasions Throughout the Year", such as birthdays, deaths, etc.

Each month is divided into sections: major celebrations, saints and heroes, and prayers. Each individual activity is marked with (F) or (S) to indicate whether it is appropriate for Family or School use.

I expected this book to have activities appropriate for the various seasons, saint's days, feasts, and other celebrations of the Church. I did not realize that a good portion of each month's section would relate to things like Groundhog Day, April Fool's Day, First Moon Landing, National Ice Cream Day; or that there would be items like a Leap Year Day Prayer, and a Tomato Psalm. I agree with making the ordinary extraordinary and finding God in simple everyday occasions, but finding these sections seemingly on par with sections about holy days and canonized saints was a bit disconcerting and distracting. Some of the "prayers", apparently written by the author, for a variety of occasions were a bit... cheesy (in my opinion).

The subtitle of this book is, "Hundreds of Activities for Catholic Children". Many of the suggested ideas for saints' days and special feasts are great - for example, making Hawaiian leis on May 10th, in honor of Saint Damien of Molokai, a missionary to lepers in Hawaii.

Celebrating Saints and Seasons is full of tips and ideas for every Catholic household. The ideas are practical, meaningful, and fun. I have used some of the ideas for every day use, not just during that specific month.

I was looking for reproducible activities for young Catholic children.
This is more of a ideas book rather than an activities book.
I'm very busy and pressed for time, I need the actiivties ready to go!
