A Great Book for Kids

Posted by Tracy Wainwright at 11:05 AM
I was asked recently by a fellow author to review his first children's book. I thought, sure, I love books for my children, especially God-centered books. I did a little research on the author and the book and became excited, anticipating my copy of "This Little Prayer of Mine."

Often, as we anticipate something and have high expectations we are let down. This is not one of those circumstances.

As a Christian mom, a big part of my job is to teach my children about God and how to have a strong relationship with Him that includes godly prayer. This is often a challenge, as prayer is an abstact thing and difficult for children to understand. They do it, even my 2-year-old, but do they really understand? I was hoping that "This Little Prayer of Mine" would be a tool to help me in this task. I was not disappointed.

This lovely children's book by Anthony DeStefano presents prayer to children in a concrete, God-focused way. A quote from the book will help you get a feel of it's entirety: "But when I trust in you, my God, and in your plan for me, I know there's nothing in the world that I can't do or be." And so it goes, praying to God for our wants and needs, but most of all the need to know Him better.

I feel very fortunate that this book is a part of the reading collection I have for my four children and recommend it highly to everyone. This book will be available in four days, February 16. Here's a link for more information: http://www.anthonydestefano.com/landing/blogs/Jan2010.htm. Hope you enjoy it as much as my family is!!
