The famed novelist and children's book author, Rachel Field, originally wrote Prayer for a Child (the 1945 Caldecott Award-winner) for her own daughter. Elizabeth Orton Jones' beautiful illustrations alternate between full-color and two-color (and...as was typical of the time...portrays a young blond girl in classic middle-class surroundings). Largely non-denominational except for a brief mention of Jesus at the end, this remains a popular Caldecott selection, often found in less than collectible condition. A first edition in Fine condition in a like dust jacket.
