Praying With My Fingers (Children’s Board Book)
Praying with My Fingers: An Easy Way to Talk with God – board book by Paraclete Press and Pope Francis
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.
