Little Saints is designed to be especially convenient and flexible to use while providing a very
effective, beneficial and positive first introduction to the lifelong adventure of learning. The
clearly laid out lessons in the 318-page manual include:
Word of God - The child is given daily contact with Sacred Scripture as nothing is more
powerfully instructive both spiritually and intellectually than the Word of God. Carefully selected
passages are included that introduce the day's subject. Special interactive Bible stories, saint and
feast day celebrations are also included throughout the program.
Illustrated Literature - Over 700 selections of the most beautifully illustrated, outstanding,
classic and current children's picture books available have been carefully selected for study on the
basis of their wholesomeness, academic value and the quality of both illustrations and vocabulary.
Interactive Learning Games - Designed to capitalize on the preschool child's most natural
mode of learning, these activities develop foundational readiness skills through the child's hands-
on experience and guided participation. Some of the many skills developed are:
- foundational phonics with letter recognition, formation and sounds
- beginning arithmetic skills and concepts such as counting, sorting,
sizing and patterning
- thinking, logic and listening skills
- classification and problem solving skills
- geography and history concepts
- beginning science concepts
- fine and gross motor skill development
- role playing, narrating and communication skills
Poetry - Educational experts including Charlotte Mason agree that a child should
have the opportunity to hear at least one poem a day. The poems included in Little
Saints not only illustrate the day's lesson further, but do so in a way that only the beautiful
language of poetry can convey. The poems have been carefully selected from three of the
best collections available for young children.
