Additional reviewers comment Jan 20, 2001
"A wonderful book which brings together all that is known about the religious and moral development of preschool children, plus chapters on how educators can do their work effectively. This volume will be the standard guidebook in its field for years to come. It is a must book for leaders of church day care centers, kindergartens, Sunday school and CCD programs for young children, and anyone else who cares about communicating authentic religious faith to preschoolers." --C. Ellis Nelson, Austin Theological Seminary, author of Where Faith Begins.
"This book constitutes a monumental event in contemporary preschool religious education. The research approach this volume takes is needed by all religious educators." --Lucie Barber, author of The Religious Education of Preschool Children.
