A Child's Book of Prayers and Blessings: From Faiths and Cultures Around the World

(3) K-3 Illustrated by Shadra Strickland. Jordan (mother of NBA star Michael) compiles an appealing collection of songs, prayers, and blessings (mostly Judeo Christian, with one ancient Tibetan Buddhist blessing, one Islamic prayer, and one Navajo song) for young children. Familiar American spirituals include "He's Got the Whole World in His Hands" and "Kumbaya." Strickland's rich linoleum-cut illustrations of children in nature and at peace make this collection shine.
