Endorsements & Reviews-

"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 Handbook is critically needed by all those who take early childhood seriously and who are personally or professionally in the service of children."
--Donald Joy, Asbury Theological Seminary, author of Parents, Kids, and Sexual Integrity

"As developers of curriculum for early childhood religious education, it is very helpful for us to have such a great amount of current research compiled in one volume. This Handbook underscores the need for a holistic approach to religious education that blends expertise from the fields of psychology, sociology, education, philosophy, child and family development, and theology."
--Joan Ensor Plum and Paul S. Plum, authors and editors of I Am Special early childhood religious programs

"This volume should be in the hands of everyone who plans, writes, teaches, or administers learning experiences for educating preschoolers religiously. The Handbook has my enthusiastic endorsement."
--Kendall H. Easley, Mid-American Baptist Theological Seminary, curriculum writer for the Southern Baptist Convention

"The Handbook provides educators, religious workers, and parents the necessary foundation for the most important yet precarious responsibility in the world."
--Jon Tal Murphree, Toccoa Falls College, author of A Loving God in a Suffering World

"This book constitutes a monumental event in this contemporary preschool religious education. The research approach this volume takes is needed by all religious educators."
--Lucie W. Barber, Personality Research Services, author of The Religious Education of Preschool Children
