Praise For A Prayer for the Animals

"This large, colorfully illustrated picture book gives a strong, simple plea on behalf of the animals that inhabit the Earth . . . Young readers will be drawn to the cute animal faces, and the heartfelt text—presenting itself with conscious simplicity and profundity—may instill a sense of empathy for the other creatures of the planet, one that could possibly grow into a greater curiosity to discover more."

— Kirkus Reviews

"The book’s prayerful wish is simple and powerful, and it could work equally well as a meaningful bedtime read or a discussion starter about what stewardship means."

— Publishers Weekly

"Simple, heartfelt text warmly bestows a wish of harmony, well-being, and empathy for planet’s wildlife. Large, full-spread, colorful illustrations of idyllic, placid-faced animals (wild and domestic alike) accompany and amplify the message . . . A kind and loving message for young readers, which will encourage them to be good stewards and enjoy all living things."
