KIRKUS REVIEW

Dr. Chaplin's years as Professor of Christian Education at New York's General Theological Seminary attest to the competence with which she wrote this book. But it glows also with a warmth and simplicity which could come only from having children of her own, and from having labored for many more in Parish Churches, and from writing with these same children in mind some of the materials published by the Episcopal Church. She has written this volume specifically for parents, but very useful also for clergymen of all denominations, not merely for their owns use, but in their teacher and parent training efforts. This is a very practical book with a sound summary of the theological, psychological and contemporary background from which the approach to children is made, and this orientation makes her useful discussion of how to communicate religion to children all the more lucid. Best of all, Dr. Chaplin is interesting. This revised edition should have great impact on a wide audience.
