"Pink and orange sunbeams surround a diverse group of children on the cover of this lovely book, welcoming youngsters to Jordan’s kid-friendly collection of 21 prayers....Appended with a note about the authors and sources of these prayers (most are available in public domain), this should make a good addition to the young family prayer shelf.
