For sixty years children and parents have shared in the joy and inspiration of Rachel Field and Elizabeth Orton Jones's Prayer for a Child.
This new edition commemorates the diamond anniversary of the award-winning modern classic's original publication.
Rachel Field wrote A Prayer for a Child for her own daughter, before sharing it with children around the world. Rachel Field’s other books for children include Newbery Medalist Hitty, Her First Hundred Years; Calico Bush; and Hepatica Hawks.
