Helen Cann has been working as an illustrator for a number of years, increasingly specializing in children's books. For Lion she has illustrated Who Laid the Cornerstone of the World and A Child's Book of Celtic Prayers and Baboushka.
Kids and caregivers looking for an anthology of prayers for any time of day will find a helpful resource in Prayers for Children edited by Rebecca Winter, illus. by Helen Cann. The more than 200 prayers here, both familiar and brand new, including some by Winter herself, are organized into kid-friendly themed sections, including "Here I Am, God" and "Starry Night." Cann's vibrant watercolors are by turns contemplative, joyous and cheerful. Indexes arranged by subject and by first line are included. Copyright 2005 Reed Business Information.
