DESCRIPTION
A good prayer makes you think, and it may even make you laugh! These prayers have been collected from every corner of the world and though the words may differ from country to country, the same universal themes of love, forgiveness, and hope run through them all. There are prayers for night and day, graces for mealtimes, and blessings too. Beautiful illustrations help to make this a perfect first prayer book for young children.

REVIEWS
Children's Literature
"An exquisite wave of universally expressed feelings wash across the pages of this gorgeously illustrated collection of prayers."
Booklist
"Prayers can be solemn, of course, but this book makes prayer feel light as air. . . The artwork on the spaciously designed spreads is enchanting, capitalizing on the multiple nationalities evoked."
Publishers Weekly (starred review)
"This accessible anthology celebrates such common themes of prayer as love and gratitude, and also the diverse ways they are expressed."
School Library Journal
"Dreamlike, decorative paintings that reflect the various cultures greatly enhance the selections and emphasize the book's message of inclusiveness."
Bloomsbury Review
"Replete with morning prayers, nighttime prayers, mealtime prayers, and blessings that you yourself can bestow. . . . An exquisite collection of words of love for our world."
