Katie Thompson provides teachers with an invaluable resource for introducting young children to, or reminding them of, the stories and events which lead up to the most important celebration of the Christian Year. Daily readings and fun activities stimulate and encourage children to learn more about Jesus and his Gospel of love.
I was born in Zambia to parents, ‘pioneers’ of their time, who in 1955 bravely chose to leave the family farm in Northern Ireland to begin married life on the other side of the world, growing tobacco in Africa. Due to my mother’s ill health, my family returned to Northern Ireland when I was almost three years old, and I experienced growing up during ‘the troubles’. My childhood was immersed in marvellous tales of wildest Africa, and the adventures and challenges of living there at that time.
