Moreau class publishes children's books

Submitted By Tony Rodriguez

The gift-giving ways of Christmastime continue to gleam throughout the community of Moreau Catholic High School. On December 13, thirty-two students from Bible As Literature, a Scripture-based junior and senior elected course, proudly made their way next door to the kindergarten classroom of Saint Clement Elementary School. After their short study of the "Infancy Narratives" contained within the Gospels of both Matthew and Luke, Bible As Literature designed a community-based, service-learning project targeted to reaching out to their younger neighbors in the spirit of liturgical evangelization.

As their culminating piece of assessment, students of Bible As Literature each wrote, illustrated, and published a children's book that offered their exegetical interpretations from either Infancy Narrative. Students were then partnered with a kindergarten student, with whom they read their books and discussed the birth of Christ. These books were then gifted to their new kindergarten buddies as a hopeful keepsake to help better celebrate the Christmas Season.
