Review: Prayer for a Child

Prayer for a Child by Rachel FieldReview: Prayer for a Child is a gentle first prayer of thanks for the familiar and treasured things, and a trusting petition for the protection of God, warmed by tender, lifelike illustrations.

Winner of the 1945 Caldecott medal, this beautiful book reflects the simple, childlike faith that we are all called to by our Lord. A classic that should find an easily reached place on every child’s bookshelf.
