About this Book:

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?

So begins this delightful book that affirms God's readiness to answer our prayers, no matter what our age. 
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 importantly, 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.

Our Thoughts:

My kids really liked this book. It was very cute. Hunter could read it himself, and he really enjoyed it. Then he liked reading it to his sisters. The pictures are very well done. I love how it really just sounds like something a kid would say to God. I think this will be a book my kids read often.

My daughter's favorite book is about Barbie trying to find a dress for a party. She now carries around a notebook and draws pictures of dresses. A future designer perhaps?
She also enjoys 'short' Bible stories with pictures.

I really liked Charlotte's Web. Many other too, I loved to read, still do.

My youngest son's favorite book right now is Bunny Follows His Nose. It has scratch and sniff places inside to go along with the story, and I used to read it with my sisters when I was little!
