For Every Little Thing by June Cotner (Editor), Nancy Tupper Ling (Editor), Helen Cann (Illustrator) [Review & Giveaway]

My thoughts:   
This is a lovely, very sweet compilation of poems and prayers for children. They will help parents direct their children's hearts and minds toward expressing love and gratitude to God for things about them.

The text and illustrations are gentle, thoughtful, and expressive. 

While not distinctively Christian, the poems do convey an appreciation for God and an invitation to experience God in one's life.

About the book: How do you find joy in ordinary moments? How do you mark small wonders like the return of the fireflies or a friend’s helping hand?

Arranged from waking up to falling asleep, For Every Little Thing is an engaging collection of the day and its delights. This inspirational anthology gathers classic selections, modern prayers, and new poems from multiple cultures and faiths. From Emily Dickinson to Amma, from Ken Nesbitt to Rabbi Rami M. Shapiro, fifty-one voices encourage children to be present and thankful at all hours.

Accessible language and richly detailed illustrations celebrate simple pleasures like slurping noodles and splashing in puddles. Perfect for sharing around the table or at bedtime, For Every Little Thing will awaken a sense of gratitude in readers of all ages.

  1. I would like to have Only Margaret. I would give as a gift Every Little Thing.

  2. I would like to read 189 Canaries by Dieter Böge. If you think this would be a good fit for your blog, this would be my pick for one to review.

  3. I'd like to have The Christmas Feast by Nathalie Dargent. I'd like to see The Second Sky by Patrick Guest reviewed.
