Reviews

'This is a beautiful book of poem-like prayers for children... Ruthid Busch-Schumann's illustrations are both detailed and restful, imbued with Nature as child-angels and cherubs race over rainbows or carry clover leaves through flower meadows. There is much to look at while children listen to the prayers.'
-- Juno

'It makes an ideal first prayer book for young hearts and minds to be used throughout the day and at bedtime. If you are looking for a meaningful gift for that special child in your life then this is a great choice. Families Rating: 5 out of 6'
-- Families South West magazine
