KIRKUS REVIEW

This thoughtfully designed collection with a traditional Christian perspective offers over 200 short prayers and scriptural passages arranged in thematic sections to encourage children to see prayer as part of their daily lives. The choices span a wide range in several ways, including prayers from many cultures and historical periods and from many authors, with some written by children and some by noted philosophers and poets. Short sections of well known Psalms and Bible verses are integrated throughout, using several modern translations that are accessible to children. Cann’s delicate watercolor illustrations are gracefully interwoven in a pleasing variety of formats, including narrow page borders that add to the volume’s excellent design. Her illustrations include people from many cultures and walks of life, with lots of subtle modern details that help make the collection contemporary. A subject index adds to this superb collection’s usefulness for parents and teachers in religious settings. (Nonfiction. 5-11)
