School Library Journal

Gr 1-4-A collection of 26 prayers assembled under the headings, "Prayers for the Morning," "Mealtime Graces," "Prayers for Nighttime," and "Blessings." A brief introduction and comments at the beginning of each chapter reflect on the place of prayer in our lives. Written in simple, easy-to-read language, the entreaties are recited by children in a variety of lands. From a prayer of thanksgiving, "Come, Lord Jesus, be our guest/And let these gifts to us be blessed" (Germany), to a request for strength and guidance (Israel), to "O God,/Help me never to judge another/Until I have walked two weeks in his moccasins" (Native American, Sioux), each selection addresses universal issues and emotions. Dreamlike, decorative paintings that reflect the various cultures greatly enhance the selections and emphasize the book's message of inclusiveness. Although such compilations as Lois Rock's My Very First Prayers (2003) and Rebecca Winter's Prayers for Children (2005, both Good Bks) are more comprehensive, this offering is a fine addition.-Linda L. Walkins, Mount Saint Joseph Academy, Brighton, MA Copyright 2006 Reed Business Information.

Publisher's Weekly

Prayer seems to come more easily to children, who are not as hung-up on the formalities of talking with God as grownups can be. So goes the philosophy of Brooks, who here gathers children's prayers from around the globe. He arranges numerous entries into thematic sections such as "Mealtime Graces" and "Prayers for Nighttime," offering a brief introduction to each category. Throughout, Gomez's textured, mixed-media artwork introduces imagery from different countries and cultures, as well as such universally recognizable objects as fruit, bread, moon and stars. The stylized design often rolls the art across a spread, offering varying perspectives. A prayer from India about a hen protecting its chicks under its wings is accompanied by a memorable painting of a large white hen shielding two sleeping children, while bold red tail feathers depict Indian motifs. This accessible anthology celebrates such common themes of prayer as love and gratitude, and also the diverse ways they are expressed. All ages. (Jan.) Copyright 2005 Reed Business Information.
