Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
This unusual artistic interpretation of the prayer by a well-known artist will be a collector's item. Children will enjoy the ducks and chickens in the barnyard, rabbits in the woodland, sheep in the meadow, puppies and kittens, and a stream with swans. A church stands in a valley with sheep and deer. The pictures of a farm with house, barn, gazebo, stream, woods, and mountains in the background, are shown to be connected in the final majestic scene of sunlight through clouds. Although light-infused scenes of nature are this artist's tour de force, it is a surprise that, in a book about prayer, there are no human beings. The traditional prayer uses the word "trespasses," and ends "for ever and ever." Children will learn the prayer while adults are inspired. This will be a coffee table book for fans of the artist's work. 2006, A Parachute Press Book/HarperCollins Publishers, Ages 6 up.
