From the time Caroline was born, I was always on the lookout for sweetly illustrated books for her. So much of what is published today for children is just, well, ugly.
When I found A Little Book of Poems & Prayers, Caroline was only a few months old. But I quickly bought it, looking forward to the day when we would enjoy it together.
A Little Book of Poems and Prayers
A Little Book of Poems & Prayers is simply illustrated in Joan Walsh Anglund’s well-known style. The illustrations are charming and wholesome. The poems, prayers, and short Scripture passages are positive and encouraging.
This book would work well with toddlers, preschoolers, and even younger elementary-aged students as it could be adapted through conversation about the illustrations and content.
I do feel compelled to point out that if you have a highly-sensitive child (like I do), there is one small illustration of children having a funeral for a little bird that has died. That illustration caused a fair amount of upset in our home at one point.
Otherwise, A Little Book of Poems & Prayers is a lovely, cozy book for families looking for sweet books with gentle illustrations.
