Since I’m back in the market for baby books—and my favorites have peek-a-boo flaps like this one—I’m glad I found Great and Small Prayers for Babies. It is a sweet board book that’s small enough for little hands to hold, but large enough font for Granna to read without her glasses.
The hand-drawn illustrations by Anna Abramskaya are my favorite kind: one major uncluttered element per page for focus (in this case, an animal) but a few small details sprinkled in for when you want to linger and chat about the extras.
But the words are still what matter the most to me, even in children’s books. They don’t have to be many (actually, they should NOT be many). So I was pleased that Pamela Kennedy kept it simple in this little board book, thanking God for friends, flowers, birds, and more.
No one is too young to learn “thank you.”
