A Child's Book of Blessings and Prayers offers prayers for every day - giving thanks, seeking help, and expressing care for the earth and all living things. Here are words to bless the morning, share at bedtime, hour a birthday, even give thanks for a friend next door. These graces, poems, prayers, and blessings are drawn from around the world - from Hindu, Sioux, Islamic, Jewish, Christian, and Unitarian Universalist traditions, to name only a few. Beautifully illustrated in full colour. From the book: At night, I open the window and ask the moon to come and press its face into mine. Breathe into me. 'Rumi Thank you for my friend next door, and my friend across the street, and please help me to be a friend, to each and every one I meet' - Anymous.
