This is a book of ‘Everyday Prayers’. They offer praise to God for the mundane yet glorious things that occupy childhood – the stars, the birds, fragrant flowers, animal friends, swings, and ice cream. Here was my favorite prayer.

“Thank you, God, for loving parents,
Who each day make me glad.
They work and plan and pray for me,
My special mom and dad.
Thank you for brothers and sisters,
For each dear, smiling face,
For daily bread, a snug, soft bed,
For home, a happy place.
Thank you, dear God.” [pg. 20]

One page thanks God for school buses. (???)

Conclusion. Very sweet.
