In mid-September our friend invited us to a surprise party for their two daughters. It was also a surprise for our kids because we did not told them that we were attending a birthday party of their friends. We have done this before and they were completely surprised that we pulled a trick on them. This time, we said that we will see if the girls would like to come and play tennis with us and they were excited about it. When we got there, they saw some kids in their classes getting off their car and they immediately got the message.
An award winning author and illustrator, Demi, shows in this book how Jews, Christians, and Muslims pray. Also included are prayers for Hindus, Buddhists, Taoists, and Shintoists. There is also prayers from African and American Indians.
I love the fact that Demi also included an appendix with notes on the the prayers and illustrations. She described clearly what the prayer is about and also the illustrations.
My son's favorite prayer are the Taoism and Shintoism. They are short but precise, direct to the point and very easy to understand for little kids.
Taoism Prayer:" In dealing with others, know how to be gentle and kind" (Lao Tzu)
Shintoism Prayer :O spirits, wash away my sins from me" (Traditional Prayer)

The book - I LOVE that it is inclusive of all religions!
As a spiritualist, I believe we all should embrace each other's beliefs!
