    It is difficult for a picture book of prayer that attempts to fit almost any monotheistic religion to be successful. Williamsons first book for children tries to have some encompassing flavor and, through obvious good intentions, avoids offense. Emma and Mommy say thank you, and ask God for help in dealing with nighttime fears and with Peter, who is a bully because he is sad and scared inside. The paintings are soft, and full of golden light, particularly in the scenes with angels. Both text and illustrations have warmth and sincerity and avoid undue smugness or sentimentality. No mention is made of any one organized religion; God is mostly defined as "All the love in the world." This should content most, except strict atheists or those who believe that God is sexless or a "she." Angels have rainbow-colored wings and, as with the illustration of "everybody everywhere," represent a variety of human races.

    By trying in good faith to show no favoritism toward a particular faith, this book should be useful in institutions that receive requests for spiritual books for young children.
