“Baby’s First Book of Prayers” includes short prayers on topics such as being thankful for small things like noses, giggles, and green grass to very important things such as parents and family. This children’s book also includes prayers for when a young child (or any age for that matter) is sorry for being bad and a few other behaviors that call for prayer.
“Thank you, God, for this great day!
The sun is up, and I must say,
I’m as happy as can be
For each new day you give to me.
The small size is perfect for little hands and the text is ideal for early readers. The illustrations that accompany each prayer in “Baby’s First Book of Prayers” are appropriate for the topic of the prayer and catch the attention of very young children.
