Synopsis

I Imagine... A Child's Book of Prayers by Rachel Rivett

Childhood is full of emotions. This beautiful picture book 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 - a child's conversation with God - with fresh and engaging artwork, this picture prayer 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.

Reviews

The light, soothing atmosphere created by the well-matched prayers and illustrations is deceptively simple, effectively conveying powerful images and a strong sense of comfort. --Kirkus Reviews
