Great Interfaith Collection of Prayers for Young Children Dec 4, 2008
This book was perfect for my four-year old daughter. Written by a Unitarian Universalist minister, it includes dozens of child-size blessings, poems and prayers, drawn from all the world's major religions, and many other cultural traditions. Ranging from mealtime to bedtime, birthdays, holidays and everything in between, you will find a little prayer in here to cover just about anything. It is definitely an interfaith book, the offerings are each very brief and so best for young children, and many are poems, so if that isn't what you are looking for, this might not be for you. But I found it perfectly lovely.
More like poems...not prayers or blessings Oct 21, 2008
I wanted so much a book of prayers & blessings that I could say with my daughter in the evening. This is not the book. The illustrations are beautiful, but I wasn't moved by any of the prayers. Skip it and try something else....
