This is the story of a child who can't fall asleep because of a frightening storm. The child prays, "Dear God, please help me fall asleep," and imagines the words flying away on their journey to God. The vivid prose sweeps us along, tumbling through adventures until the prayer reaches its destination - safe in the hands of God.


This beautiful story with full color illustrations will fill your child with wonder and comfort.
