Give Me Grace Boardbook Rylant, CynthiaGive Me Grace by Cynthia Rylant is a boardbook that has a prayer presented in rhyming verse for each day of the week and includes prayers for kindness, love, gratitude and guidance among others. The prayer for Monday reads in part "Monday make me good and kind To all creatures that I find". The stylized paintings with warm crayon-like colors resemble children's artwork and go perfectly with the simple and sweet way the prayers are presented. The rhyming prayers are a nice way to introduce children to daily prayer so the prayers in Give Me Grace could be used as a prayer to start the day so the child can be aware of the prayer throughout the day or could be used in the evening when you and the child can talk over how the child experienced the prayer during the day. The book is recommended for children ages 4 to 8 years of age so is a book you can share with the child or one the child can read on his or her own. The delightful illustrations and idealized verses present a world safe for a child to explore, play in and pray about.
