"ABC Jesus Loves Me is a truly comprehensive curriculum. It should satisfy those who want to provide a structured learning for their little ones. It should also be useful to those who want to pick and choose ideas without using the complete curriculum. The Christian base of the curriculum makes it an excellent option for Christian preschools as well as families who want to build a faith-based foundation...." ...Cathy Duffy of CathyDuffyReviews.com
