The poignant story line of this exceptional book – a grandfather uses a walk in the woods to explain prayer to his grandson, and later after the grandfather’s death, the grandson’s solitary return to the woods (and to prayer) brings peace – offers important lessons about the reasons and ways to pray. The grandfather’s lyrical and effective descriptions of prayer in its broadest sense and the rich, evocative watercolor illustrations will touch and teach children and adults of all religions.
