by Anthony DeStefano,
illustrated by Mark Elliott
Waterbrook Press, 2010
It's not easy to write a good rhyming book, but DeStefano has done an admirable job with this bedtime prayer for children. Short on adoration, but covering confession, thanksgiving, and supplication quite well, the book is suitable for children ages 3-7. The illustrations are realistic, and while the colours are somewhat muted, the pastels capture that soft, winding-down, going-to-bed feeling.
Recommended for reading aloud to your child or grandchild, or as a gift for the special child in your life. Buy it here.
