About The Book:
Nothing Compares to Childlike Faith
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.
My Thoughts:
This is a great book for your little ones. I liked that it was simple and easy for children to understand.
It got across the message of knowing that God loves you and is watching over you all the time. It also shows children that there is no "wrong" way to pray.
While it's a short and quick read I think it delivers a wonderful message to children.
I must add here that the book was illustrated by Mark Elliot. He did a beautiful job with tying in the story and illustrations!
Thanks to the folks at Random House I have a copy of this one to giveaway!
