What People are Saying
“This book will awaken the interest of and bless both the children to whom it is read and the adults who read and explain it to their children. For the first, it will be a charming and engaging introduction to biblical prayer; for the second, it will be welcome to read to their children a book with rich biblical content—and is likely to stir their own interest in biblical prayer.”
— Timothy M. Gallagher, OMV, author of A Layman’s Guide to the Liturgy of the Hours
“We are always looking for ways to incorporate prayer into our daily living, and this book is a great way to engage our kids and to teach them one of the oldest and most beautiful canticles in our Church. Our kids love this canticle, and the beautiful imagery in these pages will deepen their prayer and certainly take root in their hearts forever. It’s also a great entry point for the Liturgy of the Hours!”
