You will want this wonderful audio Baltimore Catechism CD after your child is finished studying for First Communion.
It has the rest of the questions and answers for the BC No. 1 which are a portion of the BC No. 2.
The presentation is lovely with Mom asking the questions while one of her children give the answers. Listen to a sample below.
You help your children read and pronounce the words first, then they can review to memorize the answers and prayers. Some children can simply hear the answers and learn it on their own. You can choose a list of several questions to review each week which is a super help for studying the questions for a catechism quiz. It's like having a religion tutor. :-)
This CD helps you and your children learn:
Also, this makes a great gift of faith for those catechumens who hope to be Baptized. They can listen to it in moments of ease.

The Baltimore Catechism No. 1 is a subset of the No. 2; so if you already have the No. 2 you won't have to buy another book. Simply mark the No. 1 questions.

If you need someone to help your children learn the prayers and the answers, this CD is an awesome tutor. A recording can be played over and over to help your children memorize the answers and prayers.

Our Lady of Good Success, pray for us.
