First Prayers With Jesus
Written and compiled by Sophie Piper illustrated by Melanie Mitchell
Each page is headed with a sentence from the Good News Bible – simply written in very understandable language – specifically written about Jesus or the words of Jesus. Then follows a relevant very simple prayer and on one page the prayer the Lord taught us.
The illustrations are a delight as so many illustrations of children’s books are. Looking back at previous reviews, I see I have admired Melanie Mitchell’s work before. Here she manages to give a softness to the pictures but keeps the bright colours. I particularly liked the little boy sitting sorrowfully on the stairs, perfect for the prayer on the facing page.
