Reviews - What do customers think about Prayer for a Child?

First Graders Review of Prayer for a Child by Rachel Field  Feb 25, 2008
In this story, the little girl blesses her food, and then she says some more prayers. She asks Jesus to let no danger frighten her until the morning comes, and then she blesses her toys and shoes and furniture.
The little girl blesses her mom and dad and thanks God for their wonderful care of her. She asks Jesus to keep all the other children safe and free from fear.

I recommend this book to other children because I think it is a good book, and I think they will like it too. It's a whole prayer that I think is nice to say before bed.

Beautiful  Oct 30, 2007
THis was one of my most favorites books as a child. The illustrations are simply beautifu as is the text. My own children loved it and I am now buying it for my grandchildren. It is a simple but heartfelt prayer that is very appropriate for a very young child (and older one as well) and one that the child can understand what is being said. It just simply is a book to keep and pass down. I have to admit I bought this for myself as it brought back such memories.
Excellent Christening present  May 12, 2007
This is a classic and beautifully written and illustrated book of prayer, written from a very young child's viewpoint. It is an excellent choice for a gift upon the occasion of a Baptism. It should appeal to both grandparents, and young parents.
Still have mine from 25 years ago.......  Apr 11, 2007
My mom saved all my children's book for when I was an adult--this was one of them. Tonight, I just taped the pages back together because they were falling out from so many years. I think it's time to buy a new one--this is classic, beautiful, sweet and yes, a great introduction to prayer. Lovely book--I plan to buy this version and hopefully my daughter can tape those pages back in 20+ years!!!
Great book for young children  Feb 16, 2007
Really enjoyed this book. The illustrations are beautiful and the words are so sweet.
