This is a new and updated edition of a popular and well received guide to prayer for children. The book is an easy reading, whimsical, and lyrical book for elementary age children. The first half consists of rhyming verses describing what prayer is and how to pray. The second half consists of prayers that can be taught to children. Table prayers, bedtime prayers and general prayers are included. The book is intended for children, but also serves as an aid to parents, grandparents and others who wish to introduce children to the concept of Christian prayer. The book could be used as a First Communion gift or in religious education courses.
