Praying with My Fingers: An Easy Way to Talk with God

Paraclete Press (Author) Pope Francis (Author)
Available

Description

With gentle rhyme, children ages 1-5 will delight

in learning how to pray by simply looking at their

fingers.

Counting with my fingers,

I learn how to pray.

Looking at each finger,

I know what to say.

My thumb is the closest,

So I pray for those closest to me,

Like Mom and Dad,

My whole family tree ...

This creative form of prayer has been around for a

long time, and is often credited, especially today,

to Pope Francis when he was the Archbishop of

Argentina. Regardless of its origins, it's a powerful

way to teach our children to pray that the Holy

Father has often utilized in his ministry.

About the Author

Inspired by Pope Francis

Reviews

This simple book geared to very young children is a great tool for teaching simple prayer. It's especially appealing to my preschoolers, who are at the perfect age for manipulating their fingers one by one. Inspired by Pope Francis, the book uses the fingers to remind children (and adults) for whom to pray: family and friends, teachers, leaders, the weak and sick, and ourselves. The illustrations are bright, simple, and appealing. --Carolyn Astfalk, Relevant Fiction for Body and Soul
