What Can You Do... Catholic Easy Reader and Keepsake Journal
Nancy Nicholson

What Can You Do...

Do you have a youngster who is positively famished to read more, but isn’t quite ready for chapter books? Or a student who needs just a little bit more practice, but is reluctant to go over the day’s reading lesson yet again?

The short stories featured in What Do You Like to Do... (for students who have completed Little Stories for Little Folks: Catholic Phonics Readers, Level 2) and What Can You Do... (for students who have completed Level 3) will please the “hungry” eager reader, as well as provide encouraging practice for reluctant readers. Both books include “journal pages” that not only give the child a special “ownership” of his book but also create a precious record of the child’s responses.

Stories in What Can You Do... are based on the Corporal and Spiritual Works of Mercy, made understandable through situations that the child himself might encounter. As the child reads discussion-stimulating stories of other children living out the Corporal and Spiritual Works of Mercy, he is both challenged and invited to include his own responses to serving Christ in others.

Features layflat perfect binding for ease of use. 25 stories. 167 pgs. Illustrated. Softcover. 8½”x5½”

What Can You Do... may be my favorite CHC book yet! It is absolutely beautiful in its idea of portraying the Corporal Works of Mercy. From a catechism viewpoint, there is no better way to teach children the Works of Mercy than these sweet stories of children fulfilling them. They can relate to them and understand how they can act as well. Another learning strand is the journaling of what they would do to please God through each Work of Mercy. There is ample room for writing as well as space for drawing pictures to illustrate their story. A beautiful keepsake to be enjoyed over and over! ”

“My 6 year old daughter enjoys this story book and journal rolled in one. It helps her think about others first and more importantly, what she can do for others in her own little way. We were pleasantly surprised by "Nita's Idea" because the story is set in Manila, Philippines. In fact my girl wanted to visit San Agustin church the same day! The story also "persuaded" her to wear a dress everytime we go to church (because she's a shirt and leggings girl!). The stories in What Can You Do... are great in explaining the corporal and spiritual works of mercy to a child by the concrete examples shown by the characters. Even my 10 year old is curious about his sister's book. We are just about to complete the journal and it looks like a scrapbook of good works already. By learning a story each week, we have also gathered "works of mercy" the children will do during Lent, such as donating clothes and toys to the orphans, visiting our sick neighbors and cooking for them. It's a wonderful way to instill love for neighbor without really telling my kids what to do. Because of the stories we read, they are able to come up with their own works of mercy. We're thankful for this Catholic journal that is perfect for our 6 yr old. We're hoping this will start her on the habit of writing or drawing her thoughts and feelings, and hopefully even her prayers to Jesus. ”
