A Beautiful Book of Prayer for Children

Pray Always: A Catholic Child's First Prayer Book compiled by Conor Gallagher, from Saint Benedict Press

This is a beautiful hardcover prayer book, perfect as a First Communion gift for a boy or a girl. It is a little expensive, but it's the kind of book a child could carry for many years as it is well-bound and printed. Second Daughter was blessed to receive this book as a gift.

The book includes any basic prayer a child might want like the Our Father, the Apostle's Creed, the prayer to St. Michael the Archangel (a particular favorite at our house), and instructions on how to pray the Rosary. An examination of conscience precedes the Act of Contrition. A couple of pages encourage children to find times of prayer within their daily activities.

A second on Praying with the Saints talks about why we ask saints to pray for us. It's followed by thirteen saints with illustrations, short descriptions, and a prayer for each one.

The book ends with the Litany of the Sacred Heart of Jesus, the Litany of the Blessed Virgin Mary, and the Divine Praises.

This book may be less expensive from the publisher or from Sacred Heart Books and Gifts. Neither of these are affiliate links, but they are both places I have shopped and been pleased with the prices and the service.
