Title: Guided by His Light: A child’s bedtime prayer book

Author: Susan Jones

Publisher: Skyhorse Publishing

Publication Date: March 2017

Format: Paperback ARC

Length: 64 pages


This is a sweet little book that contains over fifty prayers written for young children about a variety of subjects and with lovely illustrations done by Pauline Siewert. Children will also love the rhyming of each one, very easy to read.

The very small size of the book (4 inches by 6 inches) may make it less than optimal for a library but it would definitely be a very good choice for a gift or for one’s own child or grandchild.
