Church Publishing Inc. (publisher of Episcopal resources) is offering some free books right now including Candle Walk by Karin Holsinger Sherman. This beautiful illustrated picture book prepares children for sleep by taking them on a candlelit wander through the woods and inviting them to experience Compline, a centuries-old practice of contemplative evening prayer. Suggested for toddlers through elementary aged children, Candle Walk is a wonderful way to help assure children of the nearness of God. The Order of Compline from the Book of Common Prayer is also included at the back of the book. churchpublishing.org/freeresources
