The Sixth Commandment (You Shall Not Commit Adultery) always seems a little difficult to explain to small children, but this book does this in a beautiful way.
An excerpt: " God blesses marriage between a man and a woman. When two people get married God gives them to each other. This is very special! They would not want to go out and get somebody else!...............He wants us to keep ourselves pure. What does it mean to stay pure? Well....we respect other people by treating them with dignity.................We wear clothing that covers our bodies well, and we make good entertainment decisions. We choose TV shows, movies, magazines, and games that are clean and wholesome............."
This is only a small taste of what this book teaches. I highly recommend it for children, catechists, parents, and grandparents.
I never would have equated a love of money as a "strange god." Nor would I have equated gossiping about someone as "stealing." Now, I can see how it would be "stealing" someone's good name. As a child, stealing meant the simplistic taking of something that didn't belong to me.
These are the "Christian" 10 Commandments as number two is not about not making any "graven images." As you can see by my parenthetical inclusions, I learned these Commandments long before they were modernized, so I didn't expect the graven images. Blessedly, they listed numbers nine and ten in their correct order, giving preference to "coveting" someone's wife as opposed to "coveting" their possessions.
