Learn Thanks...Simply Mar 9, 2007
Thank You Prayer by Josephine Page is a simple way to teach young children about prayer and thankfulness. The rhyming book doesn't have a storyline; instead, it's a written prayer that contains thanks for food, "for loving me," "the world so sweet," birds, family, and children everywhere.
What I like: The illustrations, by Caroline Jayne Church, show friendly animals in vivid color. The cover of the book is padded cardboard, and the pages are thin cardboard - more durable than regular paper pages, but more like an adult book than the thick cardboard of a board book. (My 18 month old hasn't destroyed the pages yet!)
What I dislike: The prayer does not begin with a salutation (like "Dear God"), nor does it end with an "amen." Parents can easily add these on, though. I do wish the text were a bit more "deep," but the wonderful illustrations really help make up for this; my daughter's attention is held rapt when I read this book to her.
Overall Rating: Good.
Age Appeal: 8 and under.

Cute first prayer book Jan 15, 2007
This book is a cute first prayer book. I wish it were a bit longer; it is only 14 pages (7 really because one "thank-you God" takes 2 pages). The pages are a too flimsy for my daughter to turn though. I would think the makers of this book would have used the thicker board-style paper.
a beautiful book Mar 22, 2006
My mother bought this book for my daughter Hannah who is 2. She loves it and we read it each night. She has memorised it and reads it to us. It is very simply put and just lovely. I have to say it is my all time favourite book. I am ordering 2 copies of it so I can give them to friends. I think it is a must.
