A touching and not unduly pious Christian prayer for children, with endearing illustrations. Jones won a Caldecott Medal in 1945 for this book. 8vo tan cloth, ca. Very uncommon signed. Brief (non-authorial) gift presentation front flyleaf, else the book itself is near-fine in a jacket that has small tears at folds and nicking with slight loss at some of them and at the spine ends, and the jacket price has been removed by cutting out a triangular wedge in the the front flap of the jacket. Withall, a very attractive copy of this Caldecott Medal winner. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]
