book review

Reviewed by: 

From the bright illustrations to the eloquent prayer, A Prayer for Our Country is stunning! The wording of the prayer is thoughtful, sound and not overwhelming for children. Each page is bright, colorful and full of life. This would be a great book to add to your child’s bookshelf or to give as a gift!
