Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
Children and adults will enjoy "walking" through this text as they learn The Lord's Prayer. The young girl in the story spends the day with her father. The reader will see familiar places that are a part of this child's life as she helps her father help others. The identity of the loving father to the child is designed to relate to her relationship with her Heavenly Father. The reader will learn about the goodness of helping others and the joy of spending time working alongside the father. The illustrations are beautiful, and the Afro-American portraits of the father, child and neighbor make this an important addition to all library collections. 2000, Eerdmans Books for Young Readers, $17.00. Ages 6 up. Reviewer: Joyce Rice
School Library Journal
Gr 1-3-This version of the Lord's Prayer (not King James) is also about an African-American family in the city, depicted in strong, realistic watercolor-and-acrylic pictures. By the sign on his truck, Ted Davis's occupation is known: "Exterior Repair, Lawn Care, Painting." On this day, Ted drives with his daughter to the lumber store, the deli, and the flower shop, and finally to an elderly woman's home. He and his daughter do all of the work for her that his truck advertises, and he refuses pay. The lines of the prayer are supposed to be illustrated by the events of the story: for instance, as the girl finds a shiny medallion in the yard and holds it thoughtfully, the accompanying lines are, "And lead us not into temptation,/but deliver us from the evil one." The pictures themselves are expressive, but such literal interpretation is moralistic, jarring, and sometimes obscure.-Carolyn Jenks, First Parish Unitarian Church, Portland, ME Copyright 2000 Cahners Business Information.
