99 Prayers for Children by Juliet David and Elina Ellis

Book description:

A companion prayer book to 99 Stories from the Bible with delightful illustrations in a strong vibrant style and prayers for all occasions. The prayers are a combination of traditional and modern and provide an introduction to family prayer time with young children, bringing talking to God to life in the heart of every child.

My review:

I am a fan of everything I have ever read by Candle Books.  The illustrations are always so bright, vibrant, and naturally appealing to children.  This one is a pretty lengthy for a children’s book of prayers.  It even has a table of contents to help readers find the section they are looking for.

I really enjoyed the diverse assortment of prayers offered in this book.  Some are poems by well-known authors such as Robert Louis Stevenson, others are prayers by ministers from the past, and others are directly from Scripture.  I was very pleasantly surprised to see the assortment of prayers.  Children’s prayer books typically offer morning prayers, mealtime prayers, and bedtime prayers.  I was pleasantly surprised to find prayers for family members, prayers for help, and also prayers of thankfulness.  What a wonderful way for children to learn that they can approach God in every circumstance.

If you are a parent or grandparent looking for a book to help guide the children in your life to approach the Lord no matter what they are experiencing in their lives, look no further than this one.  This book gives the words to children as they are learning about the process of prayer in their lives.

I received a complimentary copy of this book from KregelPublications in exchange for my honest review.  All opinions are my own.
