Holidays and Holydays for Spirit Play:
original curriculum by Charlene Brotman (used with
permission), edited for Spirit Play by Nita Penfold
You have captured the heart of the curriculum, enhanced it with great
pictures, and given fail-proof instructions. I am just delighted that you have
made the contents of the curriculum available in this new way, and extended
its outreach. What a tremendous lot of work and research and resources
you have put into this project. I am deeply appreciative that you have made
my ideas and writing come to life in this new form you created.
