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

Great book for young children  Feb 15, 2007
Really enjoyed this book. The illustrations are beautiful and the words are so sweet.
A Must Have Book for Your Little One's Collection  Nov 30, 2006
I found this book (original edition, signed copy by Rachel Field) in an antique store and bought it back in 1995. My daughter was only 1 year old at the time but I thought of her when I looked at the beautiful, colorful illustrations throughout this precious book. I happen to collect the little german painted angels you see throughout the pictures and so it was a perfect book for my daughter's collection. Little did I know it would become one of the favorites of our family! It shows the innocence of children and reminds us to pray for others around the world - and boy, do we need to remind our children to do that today!!! Now, I buy this book for my friends having babies and grandchildren. It's definitely a "must have!"
GET the BOARD BOOK VERSION  Oct 17, 2006
This is a great book. I love it. The Prayer is sweet and lovely. Yes she does include a line about her toys and her painted chair. Some hardened New Yorker didn't like that, but soo what. Those are simple things that appeal to children. The pictures are old fashioned, but well made, and also, quite endearing. Five Stars, but do yourself a favor, buy the BOARD BOOK, don't get the flimsy paperback, it just takes all the charm out of the book. Enjoy!
A timeless, beautifully illustrated classic for young children  Jul 1, 2006
This Caldecott Medal-winning book has been a classic ever since its original publication in 1941. Rachel Field originally wrote this simple, endearing prayer for her own little girl, but countless young children and their families have been blessed by it over the years. The prayer itself has wide appeal, as it basically just asks God to protect the important things in any child's life - family, friends, toys, and all the other children in the world. The really exquisite, life-imbued pictures of Elizabeth Orton Hand illustrate every part of the prayer, allowing young children who have not yet learned to read to follow along with the prayer as it is read by a loved one. I've no doubt that the reading of this little book could easily become a nightly ritual in many a household. Kids will love the wonderful, colorful artwork, while Christian parents will value the message being communicated to their little one.
Classic child's prayer  Sep 11, 2005
I recently purchased this book as a gift for my 10 month old daughter for her baptism. I received the book as a gift from my parents when I was a child (the hardback version) and have fond memories of having it read to me. I decided on the board book because it will survive all the wear and tear infants tend to inflict upon books. I will most likely purchase the hardback version when she is a little older, but I recommend this book (and its construction) to any parent wanting to read a lovely, gentle prayer to a sticky-fingered infant.
