The best place to teach children about our faith is in the home. The Anglican Family Prayer Book is a resource for Episcopal families who want to pass on Anglican prayers and traditions to their children and teach faith in everyday settings.

This important new resource has been compiled by The Rev. Canon Anne Kitch, well known for her children's books, Bless This Day and One Little Church Mouse. A parent as well as an educator, Anne Kitch introduces these Anglican prayers and practices with stories from her own life, as well as brief information about the history and use of the prayers.

The perfect resource for families, especially those who may be new to the Episcopal Church, as well as church school teachers, youth ministers, and clergy, The Anglican Family Prayer Book helps parents and children pray together. Prayers for morning and evening, blessings, nighttime prayers, prayers for ordinary and special occasions, intercessory prayers, prayers of the Eucharist, and prayers for use during the special seasons of the Church year make this book one that families will use every day.

"The Anglican Family Prayer Book is a major contribution to the spirituality of the household. Anne Kitch weaves "common" prayers and canticles into a texture of sacred time, space and place that is exceedingly relevant and important to the development of faith formation in the home. At a time when we need to get back to the basics, this book provides an orientation to prayer for daily life that is centered in tradition and orients us to joy."--The Rev. Robyn Szoke, Staff Officer for Children's Ministries and Christian Education, The Episcopal Church Center

"Anne Kitch has crafted a jewel-like book. Its facets are fashioned from personal narrative, classical prayers, useful advice and lovely illustrations. It has a timeless quality appropriate for prayer and it does a little jig now and then just to let you know that prayer is for fun as well as when life overwhelms our everyday words. This book is more than a collection of prayers. It opens up the way to pray life, rounding the year and dwelling in each day. Read it for yourself. Use it to guide your children. They will memorize more than we can remember before they know they are doing it."--Jerome W. Berryman, Center for the Theology of Childhood

"In The Anglican Family Prayer Book Anne Kitch has given us an indispensable companion to the Book of Common Prayer, providing entry into it for those who may be unfamiliar with its use, and at the same time, supplementing it with delightful prayers and engaging rituals particularly suited to households with children. The gentle narrative guides, explains, and encourages family members to pray together without awkwardness in ways that are both traditional and creative, and which include people of all ages, from toddler to grandparent. While geared primarily toward Episcopalians, this gem of a book is a perfect gift for any Christian household." --The Rt. Rev. Catherine S. Roskam, Bishop Suffragan of New York
