About this Book:
In this marvelous handbook, Sister Janet Schaeffler offers teachers, catechists, and parents concrete and practical tips and strategies for helping youngsters learn about prayer. Each of these is a well-tested idea, and this book should be in the hands of every catechist, Catholic School teacher, and young parent in the Church!
Prayer is the basis of faith which is growing and developing in the lives of our children. Through prayer, the child learns to speak with God, to pray the liturgy, and to trust God in all things. Let Sister Janet guide your teachers, catechists and parents to an ever-deeper experience of Christian prayer.
