Miss Baker’s classroom was empty!
Where did everyone go?
Valley Elementary School’s fifth-grade class was pretty ordinary until the day they met Kit Cat. Suddenly, with a twitch of his tail and his whirling watches, Kit Cat turns an essay contest into the adventure of the year!
The class travels back in time to discover the critical role prayer played in our nation’s history. Kit Cat introduces the students to the Pilgrims, the first Continental Congress, George Washington during the Revolutionary War, the Constitutional Convention, and President Abraham Lincoln. The fifth graders quickly discover why the U.S. Congress established a yearly National Day of Prayer in 1952, how it is observed today, and why it is so important to the future of our nation.
Kit Cat’s Time-Travel Adventure is a captivating tale that gives children an awareness of our heritage and challenges them to help change their country, state, and city for good through prayer. This excellent resource for parents and teachers is full of practical suggestions for observing the National Day of Prayer.
What a delight to have Kit Cat show us one of the bright sides of America! Prayer can be fun; it can be exciting, and it can turn our nation to God. This is a vital book for our new generation.

Kit Cat’s Time- Travel Adventure is an intriguing story that I believe will hold grade schoolers (and Moms and Dads too) spellbound as the story of America’s National Day of Prayer unfolds. I believe it’s never too early to establish in the minds of America’s younger generation the priceless spiritual heritage we have in our nation and how only the prayer of God’s people can sufficiently guard that heritage for generations to come.
Dick Eastman, President, Every Home for Christ
I enjoyed this book and expect to use the prayer guide.

The excitement of prayer is brought to life in Kit Cat’s Time- Travel Adventure. A great curriculum tool to highlight the National Day of Prayer for both private and public school educators!

This book is an enchanting way to teach our children about our prayer heritage. God has trusted our future to us; we can decide it – if we’ll pray!
