"Practical advice is the keyword of this excellent book, taking you, as it does, through what Chidren's Liturgy is - an exploration of the Gospel at a child's level, and also what it is not - a crèche, or an RE lesson."

"(...)this book is full of information and inspiration. When children are brought for baptism, the Christian communIty gathered for the sacrament promises to uphold those children in their new life in Christ. If we are faithful to that, we should receive this book with enthusiasm, and provide enough personnel, prayer and preparation to enable the children to participate actively in the liturgy of holy communion."
