I've Found a New Kid's Book Worth Reading

This Little Prayer of Mine by Anthony DeStefano; illustrated by Mark Elliott

"With engaging rhymes and beautiful illustrations, This Little Prayer of Mine assures children that God is always near--watching, listening, caring, and eager to respond to their requests. They'll also learn that prayer isn't just about asking for things, but about sharing their feelings of sadness and uncertainty as well as of thanksgiving and joy.

Most importanly, This Little Prayer of Mine reminds children—and those who love them—that they can trust God to tenderly care for them, no matter what the future holds."
(from the back cover)

What's so important about this book endorsed by so many? Well, what's more important to teach a child of God than prayer? This darling book is fun to read and the illustrations are colorful and beautifully done. Teaching our kids that God is with us, He hears us and wants to hear from us and speak to us is a priority, isn't it? If it isn't, it should be. Deep theology need not muddy the water for little ones, just simple truths, spoken with faith. This book is that.
Here's a little exerpt:


I know you’re up in heaven, God,
and can hear my voice from there.

I’m just a little child.
Will you answer my short prayer?

Books are important and I have so many they are piled in every available space in my house, and of course I supply my children with as many as myself. This one certainly takes a place of honor on the shelf of my youngest son. More than anything I want my babies to know and love the Lord. Books like this one are worth reading.
Snuggle up with your little ones 'round you on these cozy winter evenings and share some faith with them. Bless them with wholesome things for their little ears to hear and eyes to see.
This book got great reviews by some big names. It deserves every bit of it.
