Prayers for children

Gr. 2-4. This ample volume offers more than 200 prayers, traditional and those newly written, to help, aid, and affect children’s lives. The prayers are arranged in five chapters (with rather meaningless titles, such as “Here I Am, God”). They are prayers of thanks, for food, for medial care, for forgiveness, for help and understanding. Some ask for universal harmony or the courage to go on after tragedy strikes. Original prayers, including one based on the book of Job (praising God despite the world’s tragedies), are bolstered by traditional prayers or psalms. Despite the fact that the prayers come from different countries (and the people featured in the illustrations are of different nationalities), the introduction makes clear this is for Christians (“God gave the world an insight into what he is like by sending Jesus”). Sometimes an author’s name is attached, but there are no biographies of the writers. The watercolor artwork is delightfully rendered; interesting nature- or city-themed borders decorate pages filled with pictures that offer loving scenes from around the world. The prayers are indexed by both subject and first line. Ilene Cooper
