"I have used The Joyful Child over and over professionally, in teaching children as well as college students and adults...The Joyful Child is an invaluable resource for renewal--it's simple, yet profound principles benefit us all."
--Donalee Brown Psychology professor, Fairleigh Dickinson University
Dr. Peggy Joy Jenkins' unique sourcebook establishes a system of positive self-programming through parent/teacher-directed activities. From games, songs, and stories to puppetry, art, music, and movement--all suggestions are grounded in the solid philosophy of universal humanistic values.
The Joyful Child also presents a wealth of information and references to expand on specific topics of interest. This sourcebook not only encourages a new perspective in families and classrooms, it also leads us to search for the roots of true childhood magic and thus rediscover the child within ourselves.
Dr. Jenkins received the Golden Balloon Award from the World Children's Day Foundation, a branch of UNICEF, in 1990.
"The biggest task in parenthood is to promote thought so children can experience the universe as an unfailing support system to promote an inner core of security. Dr. Jenkins' explanation of this complicated philosophy is lucid, sensible, and magical."
--Patricia Kennedy Comfort, Ph.D. Child Psychologist
"The Joyful Child is a must for anyone who cares about children."
