Description

This beautifully illustrated collection of prayers includes words for all through the year. The prayers in this book not only match the seasons: they speak in turn of hopefulness, joy, thanksgiving, reflection, and of God's everlasting love. Themes include: Springtime (beginnings, choosing the right path, hope); Summer (praise for creation, journeys, holidays); Autumn (harvest, thanksgiving, reflection); Winter (sad times, partings, prayer); Christmas (heaven on earth); and Easter (resurrection, eternity, heaven). Elena Temporin's warm illustrations give this collection a friendly quality.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. . . . A fine addition to religion collections." --School Library Journal on The Lion Book of Prayers to Read & Know "This gentle prayer book has an artful vibe. . . . Many are from the Bible, but traditional/anonymous verses, poems and even a Navajo night chant are also featured, giving the small-format book a broader spiritual vision (and audience)." --Publishers Weekly on Goodnight Prayersshow more
