In our research the right of the child for spiritual development is central. Grimmitts distinction in teaching in, about and from religion is extended with the concept of teaching for - a concept that connects religion with childrens attitude of wondering as an ontological calling in their life. The question whether a non-religious story can function as a rich learning environment for teaching for, is explored in a picture voice-research design. In a small pilot study with four children in primary school age an episode of the story of The Little Prince was presented as a rich learning environment. We conclude from this pilot that the narration of a non-religious story, together with the childs drawing of the storys critical incident and a subsequent conversation (picture voice) functions as a stepping stone for the development of spirituality.
