A Child's Book of Blessings and Prayers
Collected by Eliza Blanchard
Illustrated by Rocco Baviera
ISBN#: 978-1-55896-535-5

Eliza Blanchard is a Unitarian Universalist minister, former English teacher and a religious educator. A Child's Book of Blessings and Prayers is a wonderful book filled with prayers, chants and blessings from all walks of life. People from different religions spanning the landscapes of our big beautiful world have created them, some of these words were written by people of the past and others are written by people walking with us today.

There are Christian prayers, words of wisdom from Unitarian Universalists, Native chants from the Blackfoot tribe and Sioux chants. There are Hindu prayers, Pagan chants, Islamic prayers, Jewish and Irish blessings.

After my son Alex and I read this book he continued singing an Inuit song all morning. The illustrations by Rocco Baviera go together so well with the words, giving you and your child a lot to talk about while reading it. A great teaching tool indeed! I love books which provide an opportunity for me to interact with my child like this one does. There is so much more to this experience than simply reading the words.

This would be a perfect gift for any child in your life during all the upcoming holidays.
