Have you ever wondered when and how to introduce the pro-life message to children? We cannot emphasize enough the great importance of giving young girls and boys an early and firm foundation for understanding that life begins in the womb. However, we also understand it can be a difficult topic to tackle. One proven technique for preschoolers to elementary age is storytelling. Children not only enjoy stories, but it can also be a way for them to learn. Books give you an opportunity to share time together and discuss personal experiences, including the child’s own birth.
Two outstanding age-appropriate resources are being offered by Arkansas Right to Life.
The Amazing Beginning of You by Matt and Lisa Jacobson, serves as a resource to help parents and others teach children about the beginnings of life. Creative illustrations and engaging color photos tell the story of life from conception to birth. While educational in content, the text directly addresses the child, making the reading personal and relatable in tone. Recommended for ages 8 and up.
The inspiration for Angel in the Waters came from author Regina Doman’s daughter. At the age of two, she was asked if she remembered what it was like to be inside mommy’s tummy. Her response was, “It was warm and dark, and there was an angel there.” Narrated from the child’s point of view with lifelike illustrations, this book artistically portrays the sanctity of human life. It is highly recommended for expecting parents with young children to help them better understand pregnancy. Recommended for ages 4 and up. Also available in Spanish.
