December 2015: Helping Others

This Topical Activity focuses on Christmas and uses the story Papa Panov, originally written in French by Ruben Saillens, then translated into English by Leo Tolstoy, to help children think about how they might help others. It is a thoughtful story, based on the Bible text 'I was hungry and you gave me food, I was thirsty and you gave me water' which Jesus used to illustrate how we should live out our faith by helping each other. The story of Papa Panov is an excellent way to introduce young children to the principles of kindness.
