A monk prays deep in the forest. It looks like he is just doing simple, ordinary tasks, such as chopping wood and tending to his garden. But as he works he is really growing prayer. The monk prays continually throughout the day and night, and as the seasons pass, he becomes a holy man.This delightful, beautifully- illustrated book teaches children that no matter what they are doing, or what hour of the day it is, they too, can pray.
