Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Tracy Defina
Now available as a board book for the youngest children, this collection of prayers and devotions is a wonderful introduction to quiet times with God. A combination of the familiar and not so familiar, you will recognize old favorites as well as be pleasantly surprised by the new. No child is too young to begin hearing The Lord's Prayer, and as they grow they can learn prayers for bedtime and mealtime. Michael Hague's illustrations of children and all their wonder are appropriately warm and soothing. Children will enjoy seeing other children planting bulbs, playing with butterflies, building sandcastles and saying their prayers. Remember this one? "I see the moon, and the moon sees me; God bless the moon, and God bless me." 1998 (orig.
School Library Journal
K-Gr 3 Most prayer collections for young children contain many of the same selections: ``Now I Lay Me Down to Sleep,'' ``The Lord's Prayer,'' ``Day by Day,'' ``I See the Moon'' and so forth. The principal differences, then, are in the format and illustrations. Here 21 familiar devotions with a Christian emphasis are presented in a handsome, artistic layout, one per page in large, clear type with an appealing illustration. The multiracial children and babies, realistically painted with clarity and elegance in both modern and old-fashioned settings, have a still, meditative quality appropriate to the subject matter. They are praying, thinking, dreaming, reading, contemplating natureall activities with which children can identify. Pat Pearl, First Presbyterian Church Lib . , Martinsville, Va.
