A grateful heart is a blessing throughout life. This collection of prayers, poems, and hymns reflects many traditions and religions: there are Native American blessings, Chinese proverbs, an African-American spiritual, and inspirations from Gandhi, the Dalai Lama, Desmond Tutu, and many, many more.
It deserves a special place in the classroom alongside grace and courtesy and community and spirit lessons. The intricate and beautiful illustrations are made through the art of “scherenschnitte” – or scissor cuts – which has its roots in 16th century Switzerland. Includes an index. Hardcover, 54 pages. Ages 5 and up.
