I'm Your Child, God: Prayers for Our Children by Marian Wright Edelman, illustrated by Bryan Collier
God help me to:
Feel. Dance. Ask. See. Laugh. Learn. Dare. Act. Be.
Marian Wright Edelman’s collection of prayers, which embraces issues that children and teens face in an increasingly complicated world, is a testament of faith and love. It is also an expression of hope for the empowerment of young people, and a more just and peaceful world.
