About the Book
A Children’s Book of Common Prayer seeks to take children, and their spiritual growth and formation, seriously. A good many people wish that as children they had been taught prayers that were accessible but not “babyish.” This book is an attempt to fulfil that desire for today’s children. It is also intended to function as a kind of ladder to the Book of Common Prayer, after which it is modelled. Among its more unique features is “A Service for the Burial of A Pet,” and a chapter on “Wisdom: Things to Think About While Growing Up,” that can be extremely helpful for children in learning to think about life in healthy minded ways. A Children’s Book of Common Prayer is for children age five to twelve. The introduction notes the level of parental participation that may be needed at each age.
