More About Make Room by Laura Alary; Ann Boyajian
 
 
 
Overview
While the Advent season is filled with fun and expectations, Lent can be hard for children. It s travels through frightening places, loaded with themes of self-denial and death. How can children approach this season in a way that is meaningful and not frightening? "Make Room" presents Lent as a special time for creating a welcoming space for God. Other books offer excellent ideas for going through the Lenten season with children, but "Make Room" uniquely connects its projects to the story of Jesus. Simple and practical activities such as baking bread, having a neighbor over for dinner, uncluttering your room, and watching less TV become acts of justice and kindness, part of a life of following and imitating Christ, and a way to make room for God in our lives and in the world around us.
Other books tell the Passion narrative for young readers; this unique book integrates themes of hospitality and self-giving that echo Jesus ministry, Jesus entire life. "Make Room" invites children to wonder about the story, to encounter Lent with all their senses, and to experience activities in Lent as part of a life of discipleship."
