Very helpful for those using the Godly Play Montessori Curriculum. It MIGHT be interesting to those who are curious about how faith develops in children (there are probably other books out there- including by Berryman- that address that more in depth). I gave it 4 stars rather than 5 because I think someone who has never witnessed a Godly Play session might still be a little confused when reading this. I'd recommend reading it while observing or attempting to teach a Godly Play Story.

This is a great step by step explanation of this unique Sunday School method of teaching children based largely on the Montessori method. Obviously, this is a book that would not be a general recommendation, but for those of you who are church goers, it is definitely worth looking into. They are re-introducing godly play at our Episcopal church and I read this book for a training that I attended. It is light-hearted and well referenced without being overly-academic.

This is a good overview of the Godly Play method and approach. It is simply written, and structured in progressing chapters to explain the various parts of a typical 'Godly Play experience.
