Publisher's Summary:
This Little Prayer of Mine is a beautiful and alluring book designed to guide children into a very simple, real and expressive relationship with God.

Through engaging rhymes and alluring illustrations, This Little Prayer of Mine shows children—and their parents and grandparents—that complete dependence on God is what brings peace and fulfillment. It invites children to know and believe that God is always just a simple prayer away and that He longs to respond to them with a resounding, “Yes!”

This book appeals to readers from all different faiths. The Easy-reader format allows children to read alone, or with someone older, and encourages them to openly express their fears, thanks, and needs directly to God.


My Review: My boys both read the book and here's their input ~
Pea Jr: It's a good book for little kids. It will help them learn how to talk with God. The pictures were pretty cool too.
Lil' Pea :I liked it.
I found this book to be a great way to introduce younger children to prayer and begin a personal relationship with God. This book is beautifully illustrated, well written and it would make a wonderful read aloud for the family.
Although it is targeted for children ages 4-8, it's message can easily can be enjoyed by all ages. This would make a wonderful gift for any child!
