In this rhyming Christian bedtime prayer book, many themes and daily concerns of the young
child are carefully and thoughtfully conveyed.
Beautifully illustrated with multicultural sensitivity by Mark Elliott—the illustrator
for Gail Carson Levine’s Princess Tales series—the soft images of many ages and races of
people in many real-life situations aid in reinforcing the comforting tone of the spiritual
message within this brief devotional.
Simple themes are covered: acknowledging the existence of God, trusting in God, and wondering
if our prayers will really be answered. The prayers include asking for help with areas such as
facing our fears, loneliness, selfishness, and sad times. Also covered are the themes of
forgiveness, thankfulness, and sharing our time and treasure.
In these days of much uncertainty, a child could easily drift off to sleep after hearing or
reading the calming words of This Little Prayer of Mine. Highly recommended.
