This book is full of useful and creative ideas for spiritual practice with children. It seeks to encourage youngsters to reflect on growing up and on making a positive contribution to the world. It takes deep themes and presents them in accessible, interesting and sometimes quirky ways, making a number of relevant, thought-provoking and challenging points for both children and adults to consider in relation to their place in the world and their dealings with one another.
The practices in this book have been tried and tested over the past five years through the author’s contact with primary school children in a number of schools.
