About the Author

Lee Bennett Hopkins, one of the nation’s most distinguished poets and anthologists, has written and edited many award-winning books for children and young adults, as well as professional texts and curriculum materials. His awards include the 2009 NCTE Award for Excellence in Poetry for Children, the Christopher Medal and a Golden Kite Honor for his autobiographical book of poetry, Been to yesterdays, Poems of a Life, and he is the recipient of the University of Mississippi’s Medallion for “lasting contributions to children’s literature.” His creativity is the result of his passion for poetry and his unflagging dedication to bringing children and books together. “You must teach children to love books,” he insists. Mr. Hopkins lives in Cape Coral, Florida.

Gigi Moore’s God-given talent was recognized at an early age. Her parents knew she loved to draw when she would get up late at night sit at the kitchen table without saying a word and just start drawing and coloring. She graduated from Moore College of Art & Design in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. After graduation, Gigi spent a few years doing design work but her greatest passion has always been children’s illustration. Gigi loves to create bold colorful illustrations, with a little touch of whimsy. She lives in Chesapeake, Virginia.

Most Helpful Customer Reviews

Format: Hardcover
Award-winning poet Lee Bennett Hopkins compiled a nice collection of prayers, including two of his own original works, in Hear My Prayer. Fourteen prayers in all, some are familiar and others brand new. While nine of them were written by anonymous authors, others are from Rebecca Kai Dotlich and Robert Browning.

The illustrations by Gretchen "Gigi" Moore are saturated with bold color. They feature diversity of characters and a touch of whimsy.

WHAT I LIKE: I like that the prayers are personal. The book offers beautiful examples for children to follow when they don't know how to pray or what to pray for. Short in length, they make for easy memorization, too. My 6-year-old likes that she can read this book by herself. The font is large and clear, perfect for emerging readers.

WHAT I DISLIKE: The illustrations are not my favorite style. They appear "unfinished." Other than that, there is nothing I specifically "dislike." But there is also nothing that stands out as extraordinary.

OVERALL RATING: Good.

It's a great set of prayers and wonderful to talk through with my kids, but it didn't quite work for my family.

However, I could see this being a wonderful baby shower present for a first time Mom.
