A creative introduction for young children to an Eastern Orthodox womans monastery through the tradition of the Talanton which summons all to communal prayer. The young pilgrim Sophias thoughts and prayers are interwoven in the pre-dawn and early morning striking of the Talanton and in the church services. The accompanying CD, in addition to the author/illustrator narrating the book with accompanying sounds of nature and the striking of the Talanton, has information on making a Talanton and selections of other Orthodox music by the group Eikona to encourage children to join. Brandenburg, Claire. 32 pages.
