Description
This inspiring collection of prayers deals with the hopes and concerns that children have for the world and its people--from family and friends at home, to the environment and world peace "We share the earth
we share the sky
we share the shining sea
with those we trust
with those we fear:
we are God's family." The prayers in this lovely compilation book are chosen from a wide range of both traditional and modern sources and are arranged thematically for referencing ease. Themes included are: For Planet Earth, For Creatures Great and Small, For Green and Growing Things, For Peace and Justice, and For a World Made New. Bright paint and collage illustrations add a truly global feel to the book, making this the perfect outlet for children to learn about the world around them and how issues can be better overcome when people of all nations work together as one.
