Adapted posthumously from the 1955 oil on panel created for the December 23, 1955 issue of Collier’s magazine.

A Prayer for a Child, Dr. Seuss’s painting with its accompanying poem were printed in Collier’s on December 23, 1955. This work, stunning in its vibrant colors and captivating in its galactic point of view, was painted from the perspective of one child’s small place in the universe. The prayer reads: “From here on earth, from my small place, I ask of You way out in space: Please tell all men in every land | what You and I both understand. Please tell all men that peace is good. That's all that need be understood | in every world in Your great sky. We understand. Both You and I.”
