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, honor 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 color.

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. -Anonymous
