“This book takes seriously the invitation of Jesus that little children be brought to him. Created by experts in early childhood development and moms who know, this book provides a series of practical and creative ways to enrich our little ones—and those who care for them—in ways that will never be forgotten. A work filled with love and care.”

—David Thomas, Professor of Family and Religion, Regis University and Co-director of the Center for Families in Allen, Texas

“The bond between parent and child is a sacred space where the love of God is consciously shared. A wonderful resource for enhancing the natural spirituality of children, including all the practical information needed to conduct a parent-child retreat.”

—Sheila Fabricant Linn, author of Good Goats and Sleeping with Bread

“A wonderfully non-threatening way to introduce children to an experience of faith in their most formative years which will stand by them when the inevitable doubting stages emerge.”
