This is the most recent book I received from BookSneeze. I had originally planned to review it and then give it to one of my 5 nephews as a gift. I changed my mind, though. I am definitely keeping this book for myself and for the children I hope to have in the future.
When I read the description of this book online, I thought that it was simply going to be children's prayers with illustrations to go along. I was wrong. This book is written almost like a devotional for kids. If you go here and click look inside, you can see an example. There are a couple of paragraphs talking about the prayer, the prayer itself, and then a "little prayer reminder". With each prayer, there is a icon that shows which song on the cd goes with that prayer.
This book would be great as a daily devotional for kids, or for a resource when they are facing something specific. Here are some of the topics included:
A School Day Prayer - talks about being a friend, the hurts you sometimes get
Day by Day - Jesus is my friend
A Prayer for My Family - God created families
The Peanut Butter Prayer - Thankfulness for simple things
When I Grow Up - God knows the future
The Puppy Prayer - Prayer is not getting what you want, but wanting what God gives you
A Penny Prayer - Praying for our country
This book teaches children that no matter what, we can talk to God. Each prayer has a colorful illustration.
Book Details: 100 Prayers 100 Praise Songs; written by Stephen Elkins, illustrated by Tim O'Connor; 205 full color pages; includes 2 CDs produced by Stephen Elkins; published by Tommy Nelson (a division of Thomas Nelson Publishers)
My thoughts: I am in love with this book. There is nothing about it that I dislike. The illustrations would keep any child's attention. The material is relevant to people at any age. The songs are well done.
