My Favorite Picture Books: Prayer for a Child

by Rachel Field with illustrations by Elizabeth Orton Jones

I mentioned this book years ago on the blog, when First Daughter was enthralled with it. Five years later, it is still one of our favorite books. It's such a sweet simple prayer of thanks from a child's point of view.

I recently (that would be back in February) read Elizabeth Orton Jones's acceptance speech when she won the Caldecott medal for this book, which is worth a little bit of your time.
