Brendan Hyde identifies four characteristics of childrens spirituality: the felt sense, integrating awareness, weaving the threads of meaning, and spiritual questing. These characteristics can be observed in children if those who work with them know what to look for and are alert to the time, place and space in which children find themselves.

This book provides ways in which schoolteachers and parents can nurture and foster these particular characteristics of childrens spirituality. It also considers two factors, material pursuit and trivialising, which may inhibit childrens expression of their spirituality.

Children and Spirituality will be of great interest to educators, policy makers, parents, and others who work with and seek to nurture the spirituality of children.
