Additionally, CatholicMom.com is home to a Catholic Book Club featuring monthly fiction, non-fiction and children's selections by Catholic authors. The site's Catholic Music Spotlights highlight the work of Catholic recording artists in an interview format designed to help promote Catholic music and aid parents in helping their children make uplifting listening decisions. Each week, CatholicMom.com offers a variety of children's activities designed to help children learn from the Sunday Liturgy of the Word. These activities, based upon the Sunday Gospel, include age appropriate coloring pages, crossword and word search puzzles, and interactive Mass worksheets designed to help the child truly embrace the Mass. Weekly lesson plan aids are offered for Religious Education teachers, homeschoolers and families looking to teach the faith based upon the Church's liturgical calendar. Visitors from over 100 countries around the globe have come to rely upon these free and liturgically relevant catechetical materials.
