Wonderful Catholic Resource!!
I was given the great opportunity to review Cat Chat Vol 4. The Cat Chat program is an ingenious way to teach children about thier faith in a fun and non-threatening manner. In Vol 4, "The Mass Comes Alive", the family is participating in a Catholic Conference. The cat, Moses, narrates the entire event and children are given information about the Eucharist. I also thought it was neat how they even added an excerpt from one of Jeff Cavins talks.
In the past, I have heard a lot about "Cat Chat". Though I heard great things about this catechism on CD, I am reluctant to buy CD's for my boys because they ussually get tossed aside in favor of upbeat music (some religious, some not). When given the opportunity to review Cat Chat, I jumped on it!
I am so thankful that I did! After listening to Cat Chat Volume 4 in the car on the way to our annual Parish Picnic, my boys now ask for it when we get in the car! They love Moses the cat and are excited to learn about the Mass. This is completely different from in the past! Normally I am greeted with moans when I try to get them to listen to something that teaches them about thier faith. The songs are also great. The CD offers the whole program, then there is just the songs, then there is even the instrumental in case you are interested in having the children sing some of the songs in church. I am embarrrased to mention that I listen to the songs when my boys are not in the car. They are catchy, easy to learn, and not annoying. I recommend the Cat Chat CDs to all Catholic families!
