TOB for Catechists Grade 5

The Grade 5 package includes D’Aulaires’ Book of Greek Myths and corresponding Catechist’s Companion, as well as rich Original Nakedness timeline worksheets to explore God’s word in the Bible. The Catechist’s Companion K-5 segment of our curriculum (totaling 5 lessons per grade-level) is especially geared towards time-constrained Parish Religious Education Programs and/or homeschooling families who may have a limited budget — otherwise for our full TOB curriculum offering with 9 lessons, we recommend REVEALED K-5.


This unique 5-lesson package for Catechists is literature-based, using a richly illustrated story to begin delving deeper into introducing the foundational concepts of Theology of the Body — what it means to be human, how to live as a gift to others, what it means to have heaven as our ultimate destiny. Exploring our rich heritage of truth and love contained in the Bible will begin the child on a journey of joy and discovery that will never end. Grades 3 through 5 together offer an introduction to the three “original experiences” (Original Solitude, Original Unity, Original Nakedness) that Adam and Eve and all of us encounter as human persons. The knowledge of self-as-gift will begin to come alive!

Guidance in forming children to become who God created them to be  

Many people lack clear and simple language they can use to help guide children in their God-given identity. Our Theology of the Body resources for catechists aims to provide answers. 

  • Easy to use 
  • Requires no prior Theology of the Body experience
  • Offers language kids can understand 
  • Engages minds and hearts through discussion
  • Fosters discovery and creativity  

Why is Theology of the Body for Kids based in literature? 

Even as a priest, future Pope St. John Paul II used plays, poetry, art and stories to awaken young people to the wonder of their humanity, the purpose of love, and the beauty of their culture. Borrowing insight from the master, each unit of our curriculum is centered around a work of literature. 

Capture with your students the joy, wonder, peace, and virtue of discovering the gift of life, and authentic identity and dignity of being male or female in God’s image. 

Can I purchase the Catechist’s Companion separately because we already own the storybook?

No. Due to our use of carefully chosen storybooks and characters that are intricately woven into understanding some of the TOB themes, plus the publishers graciously allowing this arrangement, we only sell these as a curriculum kit set together—storybook plus the Catechist’s Companion.
