Behind the simple beauty of this picturization of the "Our Father" for children lies a great deal of sincere thought. It was a difficult task which these two fine artists undertook and they have succeeded so rarely only because of their closeness to the treasured things of childhood in understanding and memory.

Each significant phrase of the ageless prayer which Christ, Himself, gave to the children of all races for all time has been interpreted in terms of the everyday lives of little children. Just as they turn naturally and sincerely from play to prayer and back to play again, so here is THE LORD'S PRAYER pictured as a lovely, friendly part of the daily lives of a little girl and boy of today, happily shared by their family, their neighbors and even the household animals.

Mr. and Mrs. d'Aulaire have been inspired here to do some of their most beautiful work.

THE LORD'S PRAYER may be obtained in either the Catholic or the Protestant edition.
