A Star to Guide Me: Illustrated Prayers for Children
A Star to Guide Me is a lovely collection of blessings and prayers for children featuring beautiful, nostalgic illustrations by German children's book illustrator Ruthild Busch-Schumann.
Including verses to say at mealtime, throughout the day and at bedtime, this little volume is the perfect first prayer book for any child, and makes a lovely gift for a christening or baptism.
Well-known traditional prayers have been edited to make them appealing to a young child's heart and mind. The collection also includes verses by Robert Louis Stevenson and St. Francis of Assisi.
Accompanying illustrations include nature themes, while cherubs and angel children travel over rainbows and carry bouquets of leaves through flowery meadows.
Watch the following video to hear my thoughts on why verses and graces, such as those found in A Star to Guide Me, are important for inspiring reverence and gratitude in children.
Hardcover, 28 pages.
