Very highly recommended -- especially for parent/child story telling time Jul 21, 2009
A gentle and inspirational picture book for young readers, "Walk In Peace" is a charmingly illustrated compilation of scenes where a child, upon leaving the company of a parent to go to school, visiting a friend, walk to the market, and a myriad of other errands, is given a parental blessing and prayer in the repeated refrain 'God loves you, sweet child. Walk in peace.' A simple, effective, entertaining, and thoroughly charming picture book written and illustrated Ingrid Hess, "Walk In Peace" is very highly recommended -- especially for parent/child story telling time.
Little Child, you can sleep in peace Nov 25, 2008
Sleep In Peace by Ingrid Hess helps little ones to feel comfortable and safe with people who look different than they do. Promotes equality among diversity by illustrating people from other nations on the pages of this slender but charming book to help children recognize people who do not look like them!
