Description

A beautiful picture book that explores the connections with nature a child might find in times of emotional need "O Lord, if things are hard, I imagine I'm a river and you help me flow quick and clean around the rocks that block my path. O Lord, if I'm full of joy, I imagine I'm a robin singing sweet songs for everyone to hear." Combining an original prayer with fresh and engaging artwork, this picture book will encourage children to reflect quietly upon themselves and our world, inspiring wonder and excitement for what lies at the heart of them both. Peaceful scenes range from forest streams, to majestic mountaintops at sunset, to a family of foxes nestled in their hole deep underground. Childhood is full of emotions, and this delightful book enables children to express them in a positive way that brings them closer to both our Lord and the world around them.
