Synopsis

When Daddy Prays by Nikki Grimes

When Daddy prays my fear of darkness disappears and angels tiptoe down the hall. I hear them through the door and wall ...when Daddy prays. In this collection of new poems by Nikki Grimes, a child learns about prayer from his father, whose prayers carry the family through each day -- no matter what the circumstances. Nikki Grimes believes that spirituality and prayer are signs of true strength and power. When Daddy Prays celebrates fathers who help their children see this. Nikki writes, In my view there is no more powerful image than that of a strong man bowing before God. And illustrator Tim Ladwig has created remarkable images, rich with tenderness and touches of affectionate humor, to enhance and complete this exceptional book.

Reviews

Catholic Observer With today's seemingly never-ending news coverage of families breaking up and the important role that fathers play in the procedure, this book offers a ray of sunshine for these fathers and their sons.

Kirkus Reviews Fourteen graceful poems portray a small boy's relationship with his prayerful father... Bold, strong pictures match the poetry and anchor the writing in an everyday world... A unique offering for a family read-aloud.
