Celebratory and comforting, simple and sweet, here is an illustrated book of prayer that serves as a kind of breviary for children. With three original, psalm-based prayers for each day of the week, children have a new prayer each morning, rest time, and bedtime. This is a book of days that will appeal to children of the many faiths that incorporate fixed-hour prayer, such as Christianity, Judaism, and Islam.
With broad, gentle language and soft, soothing art, This Is What I Pray Today is a beautifully packaged volume that includes a ribbon bookmark and offers even the youngest children prayers for Sunday, Monday, and every day of the week.
