Great book, beautifully illustrated! Mar 27, 2009
I bought two copies of this book, one for each daughter. It provides us some variety in our prayers, something besides "Now I lay me down to sleep!" Beautiful illustrations!
Wonderful Introduction for Children Feb 19, 2009
I want to teach my children the Spiritual Disciplines that were such ingrained good centuries ago. I tried and tried to find a book that they could read and understand on prayer. I wanted them to have their own "rule" of prayer. I wanted to help them make their time with God their own, and for it not to come from me. This book is a huge help. They love the pictures, and my four year old thinks the satin book mark is so nifty. Both of my children like to read from it during Morning, Afternoon, and Evening prayer. It gives me a few minutes of silence- and them also time to reflect on our blessings. Great book- Mrs. Tickle. Thank you for thinking of our children.
