Collections of suitable prayers for boys and girls are valuable and important if the young people are to be taught to pray in words and thoughts that are natural to them. But ideally they must also be words and thoughts arranged with an eye and an ear to spiritual sensitivity and devotional beauty. These two little books are such prayer books, in which young people from the age of nine up will find a wealth of devotional material especially suited to their needs and interests. Parents and godparents will want to give them at confirmation, graduation, and many other significant occasions. There could be no more appropriate gift to help our children learn how to express themselves in prayer, to find the right words for the things they think and feel until they can find their own words for their own private prayers.
