Synopsis

A Star to Guide Me Illustrated Prayers for Children by Ruthild Busch-Schumann

A charming collection of prayers for children, to say throughout the day and at bedtime. This is the ideal first prayer book for any child. Based on well-known classics, the prayers have been rephrased to make them enjoyable for children. As well as popular traditional prayers, the collection includes versions of verses by Robert Louis Stevenson and St Francis of Assisi. Each prayer is accompanied by beautiful, nostalgic illustrations.

Reviews

'This is a beautiful book of poem-like prayers for children... Ruthid Busch-Schumann's illustrations are both detailed and restful, imbued with Nature as child-angels and cherubs race over rainbows or carry clover leaves through flower meadows. There is much to look at while children listen to the prayers.'

'It makes an ideal first prayer book for young hearts and minds to be used throughout the day and at bedtime. If you are looking for a meaningful gift for that special child in your life then this is a great choice. Families Rating: 5 out of 6'

'What a gift for any child!'
