Description

Over ninety years since the armistice to end all wars...and still the fighting goes on. Children respond warmly to the idea of a world without war, and this book helps them articulate their hopes and dreams for a better world...at school, in the community and on a world scale. The poems and prayers - which are drawn from biblical, traditional and contemporary sources - also provide inspiration for how the reader can, by their attitude and actions, work for peace in their own world. The illustrations by Giuliano Ferri combine warmth and sophistication - a lovely match for the theme.show more

Review quote

"These prayers, written in simple language using words and ideas children can easily understand, are appropriate for a variety of situations. The collection reminds readers to appreciate the world and encourages children to think about their place in it by addressing issues like social justice, inclusiveness, and peace. . . . A fine addition to religion collections." --School Library Journal on The Lion Book of Prayers to Read & Knowshow more
