Childhood is full of emotions. This beautiful picture book explores the connections with nature a child might find in times of emotional need: ""O Lord, if things are hard, I imagine I'm a river and you help me flow quick and clean around the rocks that block my path. O Lord, if I'm full of joy, I imagine I'm a robin singing sweet songs for everyone to hear."" Combining an original prayer with fresh and engaging artwork, this picture book will encourage children to reflect quietly upon themselves and our world, inspiring wonder and excitement for what lies at the heart of them both.
