Kirkus Reviews
This attractively illustrated collection offers a traditional, comforting anthology of Christian prayers and Bible verses for children, suitable for use at home or in church programs. The selections are organized thematically into sections devoted to Bible verses, Christian life, planet Earth, the larger worldwide family, festivals, times of need and a variety of blessings, including bedtime prayers. The collection of over 150 entries includes many familiar choices from the Bible such as the Lord's Prayer, the 23rd Psalm and an interpretation of the Ten Commandments. Some well-known prayers, short verses and words to favorite hymns are included, supplemented by original prayers from the author/compiler. Prayers from many countries and cultures include several from Native American groups and African countries. Pleasant pastel illustrations show children from a variety of ethnic backgrounds involved in activities that relate to the prayer subjects, such as making music, gardening or tending sheep. Other prayers are illustrated with striking, golden-winged angels, flying doves or small scenes from nature. An internal illustration of children flying kites on a beach is repeated as the cover illustration, with muted tones of turquoise and purple that appear washed-out, giving an old-fashioned look to the cover. Overall, a thoughtfully selected and arranged anthology, appropriate for larger library collections and church libraries as well as observant homes. (index of first lines) (Religion. 4-9)
