From the bookshelf

If your little ones enjoy playing Itsy Bitsy Spider, they'll love the latest book by Debbie Trafton O'Neal. Thank You for This Day lets them sing and wiggle their fingers along to prayers and blessings for every day.

It's never too early to start teaching children how to pray. This book contains old and new prayers, poems, songs and paraphrased Bible verses that fit into different parts of a child's day and a variety of occasions.

Kids will have fun learning with finger plays such as "I Wiggle My Toes" and songs including "If You're Happy and You Know It."

The artwork is bright, big and colorful. The illustrations describing the finger plays are easy to follow.

Thank You for This Day (ISBN 0806640693) can be ordered from Augsburg Fortress, Publishers, (800) 328-4648; www.augsburgfortress.org. Other O'Neal books that deal with prayer are Thank You for This Food (ISBN 0806626038), Now I Lay Me Down to Sleep (ISBN 080662602X) and I Can Pray with Jesus (ISBN 080663328X).
