My Review:

This is a great read for children that are learning their prayers. They can read and learn their own religion's most common prayers, and see that God is everywhere. All over the globe. It is also a great into to Geography and History. Demi is a great illustrator and this book is no exception. I also really enjoyed that there is a section in the back to help parents find more info on the prayers. Especially if children show interest. I am giving this book a 5/5. All opinions are my own.
