Deep in the forest, a prayerful monk looks as if 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.
