As I contemplate my plans for this next round of school lessons and how we will spend our learning time as it especially relates to our faith, I am spellbound by the beautifully and thoughfully prepared Cathoic Mosaic by Cay Gibson!! It truly emanates a richness and diversity through the liturgical year in books, a Mosaic of literature! Cay explains very eloquently how literature can enrich our lives and how one can teach using a literature rich curriculum in her book Literature Alive! and she has definately out-done herself with her wonderful new book, available through Hillside Education.
At first glance I kind of thought I could do without something like the Catholic Mosaic (I know, GASP!) but upon further research and after reading posts like this at Real Learning and this at the 4real forum, my heart was overflowing with ideas and thankfulness that someone as talented as Cay would put this all together in one place where we can return to again and again to enrich our children's and our own lives with the beauty and wonder of our litrugical year all pieced together in a beautiful Mosasic, thanks so much Cay!!
