This volume looks at the role of Religious Education in the curriculum for the Early Years child. This book attempts to:

*Discuss how to incorporate a wide range of religions in the classroom;
*Consider how these can be explored in exciting and imaginative ways;
*Help readers clarify their thinking on the subject;
*Looks at the development of new approaches to the teaching of RE.

Through studying practical examples and discussing what should be aimed at when considering good practice in the classroom, she provides a text that manages to be both inspirational and useful. This is a great addition to the RoutledgeFalmer series of books on Teaching and Learning in the First Three Years of School.
