Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Carlee Hallman
Bible verses, lines from hymns, and short quotes of poetry and prose that express thanks have been gathered together for an audience of young children. The verses relate to spring, Easter, summer at the beach, fall, winter, and Christmas. Ten little colored envelopes are attached to the pages. Each includes a card with a picture on the front, a prayer inside, and a Bible verse on the back. A larger single card for the reader to write a personal prayer is on the last page. The softly-colored illustrations show darling children gathering Easter eggs, running with a dog at the beach, picking out a pumpkin, sledding, and putting on the Christmas play. Birds and other little animals, seashells, leaves, and flowers add to the natural environment. The smooth, padded cover is child-friendly. Parents and children will enjoy the verses, opening the envelopes, and talking about the pictures as they are reminded to give thanks throughout the year. This book would be a good choice for a gift book or home library, but the unattached letters make it a poor selection for most library use. Reviewer: Carlee Hallman
Kirkus Reviews
This chronological compendium of 24 short poems, Christian prayers, biblical verses and snippets from familiar, old-fashioned hymns is arranged with a seasonal approach, moving from early spring through the calendar year to the Christmas season. Interspersed throughout the volume in Jolly Postman-fashion are ten small envelopes, each containing an illustrated prayer card with a related Bible verse. The final envelope offers a Christmas card with a blank interior and an invitation to young readers to write an original thank-you prayer. The soft-focus illustrations have a pale prettiness, but the children in the spreads appear pale and washed-out, especially the thin, tow-headed boy who is one of the main characters used to illustrate the verses. One intriguing aspect of Allsopp's illustration style is the inclusion of photographic elements used as subtle accents within the art: Real wheat stalks, leaves and shells add a welcome dash of spice. Children will enjoy the element of surprise in the cards hidden in the envelopes, but the ephemeral nature of the prayer cards makes this an unsuitable choice for libraries.
