New! Feast Pages for the 19 Day Feast of Kamál - Perfection

We have 11 pages this month - with the front page having questions, like last month when we first started adding these, to help kids think about the meaning of the quotation and the name of the month. 

The Gems Kids have their monthly dialogue to think about applying what they understand about the quotation from Bahá'u'lláh. These dialogues can be used to create further skits and conversations and eloquent speech.
