Originally published in hardcover as A Child's Good Night Prayer, this gentle title, Bless Me by Grace Maccarone, illus. by San Williams, now appears in board-book format. Spare text follows an array of multiracial children as they bestow blessings on toys, family and the ""water, earth, and air."" Of the original, PW noted, ""God stays unnamed, which allows parents to decide how to adapt the verse to their own spiritual practices and leanings."" .
