I, like other reviewers, disagree with Horn Book's evaluation of the illustrations being "dated." I also find them sweet and simple and beautiful.
Our paperback copy is coming apart so it's time to replace it with a hardback.
I love that this covers all the bases of prayer that are relevant to children - toys, home, family, food, friends, all the people in the world. (not necessarily in that order)
Reading this book to my daughter will be a treasured memory for a lifetime.
My friend's daughter recently had a baby girl, and when I was pondering what to send, my daughter suggested this book, because it was so special to her. I came to Amazon to see if it was still in print, and thankfully it is! This book is very special for many reasons. It is a thorough, but simple prayer that covers everything a child may have been concerned about throughout the day. The illustrations are good, and it is these illustrations that my children remember and cherish so well after all these years. I got out the worn out book, with torn pages, and relived the special bedtime readings that I had with my children. I highly recommend this book -- it was special for me, and my children just as "Now I Lay Me Down to Sleep" was special when I was young.
