    I would really give this a 3 3 4 It is a great book but the activities seem a bit youngish for my kids I probably didn t read the description closely enough when it gave the age recommendations That said, you could easily use the concept covered in each chapter to simply lead a discussion with any age, which is likely how we will use the book If you are looking for a way to discuss building a purposeful or spiritual life without any particular religion coming into play, the book is great.

    This book has great ideas for Christians and non Christians It is easy to tailor the activities to your faith or skip ones that don t apply These activities will also help children understand what they project to others and the power of positive and negative thoughts Spirituality is hard to describe and even harder to teach to a child I find this book really helpful.
