Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
Praying at specific times in the day, an ancient adult discipline, is here extended to the youngest children. Three prayers for each day of the week are given: for waking up, naptime, and bedtime. The variously rhymed poems with uneven meter are broadly based on Psalms. Much repetition of phrase will appeal to the youngest set. The last verse of Wednesday’s bedtime prayer says: “God, be above me / God, be below me / God, please watch beside me / Until there is another day.” This is based on Psalm 72:17. Soft watercolor paintings of natural settings accompany the first prayer of each day and border the other prayers. Illustrations of a farm with sheep, a forest, a child being pushed on a swing, and waves lapping the shore give serene settings. This is part of “The Divine Hours” series. Parents wishing to instill the habit of prayer in young children may find this helpful. Reviewer: Carlee Hallman
Kirkus Reviews
The Divine Hours is a popular series of prayer manuals for adults written by Tickle, a well-known religious educator. This addition to her series is aimed at very young children, offering three short, original prayers for each day of the week. An introductory poem explains that the prayers are to be read in the morning, at rest time and at bedtime, although many of the prayers are more general in subject and suitable for any time of day. The prayers are written in a simple, gentle style, often using a structured format with soothing repetitive phrases. The author uses the terms God and Lord (but not Father), and there are no references to Jesus or to any specific religion or religious practices. Warnick's watercolor illustrations in soft pastels provide a pleasing setting for the prayers, which are inserted in white inset blocks decorated with spot illustrations of animals, plants and toys. A concluding author's note for adults explains Tickle's approach to fixed-hour prayer. Her intent is that her collection can be used by families of any religion. (Nonfiction. 2-5)
