Praise for the Godly Play series:

"Jerome Berryman recognizes the inherent spirituality of childhood and his message in this book empowers parents and caregivers to nurture their children’s connection to their place of belonging in God’s ongoing story."

Christian Education Journal

"Jerome Berryman's work helps children internalize the Christian tradition, and then offers them the opportunity to use that tradition in their daily living."

—Rev. Jim Carr, Methodist Minister, San Antonio
