Format: Hardcover
This book was perfect for my four-year old daughter. Written by a Unitarian Universalist minister, it includes dozens of child-size blessings, poems and prayers, drawn from all the world's major religions, and many other cultural traditions. Ranging from mealtime to bedtime, birthdays, holidays and everything in between, you will find a little prayer in here to cover just about anything. It is definitely an interfaith book, the offerings are each very brief and so best for young children, and many are poems, so if that isn't what you are looking for, this might not be for you. But I found it perfectly lovely.

A Child's Book of Blessings and Prayers

This is a wonderful book for young children. A great idea for grandparents to have at home or to give as a gift to their young grandchildren. Thoughtfully edited, beautifully illustrated. A "must have" for your child or grandchild's library.

I gave this book to my daughter when she was three and she quickly memorized her favorite pages. She does not love every single page (we skip a few of them at her request) but we both love most of them want to read this book over and over again at bedtime. She also likes to recite one of the blessings on her own when we don't have the book with us. Do not buy the book if you are averse to a prayer that says "goddess" or "great spirit," or if you are offended by different traditions. On the other hand if you would like to expose your child to different ways to express blessings and prayers this might be a sweet little goodnight book for your family.

I found this book exactly how I imagined it to be- a sweet little books of poetry and prayers to read to my son before bed. We are not religious, but I like the idea of saying prayers before meals and bedtime to show graciousness and thanks. This book helped me to put some ideas into words for my little guy and I love how it pulled from all different religions.

Perfect for the somewhat different Baptismal gift. Nice that it was inter-faith and multi-ethnic so appealing to many people. Well received.
