Item description for My Very First Prayers (My Very First Book) by Lois Rock & Alex Ayliffe...
Overview My Very First Prayers covers the whole of a child's world -- in a child's words -- with prayers that are fresh and full of living faith. This highly appealing collection of 120 prayers is helpfully divided into sections that reflect a child's experience -- "Morning," "Me," "People I Love," "Things I Do," "Make Everything Better," "Great Big World," "Quiet Times," and more. The prayers are short in length, but not in their fervor or feeling: "Dear God, Some people forget my name. Some people muddle my name. Please will you remember my name And remember me." "Dear God, May all the children of the world have all they need to grow up well and to grow up happy." "Jesus, friend of little children, Be a friend to me; Take my hand and ever keep me Close to thee." "Whenever there's something to share, Help me to learn to be fair." Lively, energetic illustrations bring the spirit of children to each page -- their rich color, their intensity of feeling, their stillness, their wonder. This book of prayers puts the holy and the earthly within reach of each other -- with life-giving exuberance. Delightful prayers that are perfect for very young children Here are prayers about all the things in a child's world . . . discovering oneself, living in a family, meeting new friends, exploring the world, celebrating the festivals, feeling happy, feeling sad, and learning about the love of God through the bright and busy day and the dark and quiet night.

Product was in great condition. Glad I was able to get what I was looking for as well as another book I searched for. Shipping was also accurate.
Delightful short prayers and art Dec 13, 2007
My twin boys loved this book so much that they ripped our first copy to shreds when I left it in their room at naptime one day!
We're on our second copy and they like me to read several of the prayers to them because many of them are written as if they are poems. Most are short and simple, just what a 2-year-old child needs. They are organized by subject/season and most all are prayers of observation and gratitude. I find myself enjoying them as much as the kids because too often I forget to stop and say "Thank you" to our Lord.
This is a great first prayer book to help your children get comfortable with addressing God in a way they can understand.
