Linda Hill Griffith has illustrated dozens of children's books, including The Sleeping Beauty Ballet by Laurie Sale and Exploring the Human Body by Lisa Rojany. Her delightful art also appears on calendars, greeting cards, and two series of collector's plates for the Franklin Mint. She lives in Orange County, California, with her husband, Robert; daughter, Lauren; one cat; and two dogs.From School Library Journal:
PreSchool-Grade 2-This traditional material, suitable for all religions worshipping God, is enhanced by detailed, full-page paintings of anthropomorphic teddy bears involved in pleasant human activities that coordinate well with the accompanying quotations. The carefully executed, realistic pictures are filled with flowers, winsome animals, and pretty clothing. The bears picnic, ice skate, read, garden, say bedtime prayers, celebrate Thanksgiving, and so on, as they lead familiar, comfortable lives. The 13 prayers and blessings are short and easily understood. Often excerpted from hymns and poems, they include such favorites as "Now I Lay Me Down to Sleep," "I See the Moon," and "All Things Bright and Beautiful." The handsome, large format featuring framed illustrations and well-spaced text is eye appealing. Although many attractive prayer books for children are available, this one should be a popular addition.
