Young Children and Toys Praying

Title

Young Children and Toys Praying

Description

Depicted in black and white is a scene of two children, a young girl and a young boy, praying before bed. Both have their hands clasped and faces tucked near the edge of the white-covered bed; they too are dressed in white nightgowns. On both sides of them, their toys are also positioned to pray - a doll and toy horse are clearly visible. It is labeled "Little Tots' Prayer" and sideways on the right side of the card is printed "My sister Sue and I, we say our prayers, and Rocking Horse / and all the dollies, they do too, / And all of us we promise to be good, so God will try His / very best to do, / For Momma and for Papa and for Sue, and Rocking / Horse and all the dollies too."
