A review by Nancy Sanders, reprinted by permission:
Is your child feeling sad? Are they happy? Or feeling thankful? Then it’s the perfect time to talk with God about how they feel…and this adorable book helps them get started.
With simple prayers of childlike faith, this board book helps littles learn to talk with God through prayer. Whether they feel jealous…or are celebrating their own God-given unique qualities…the prayers in this sweet board book with rhyming text help kids connect with God.
And the art is so adorable! With a variety of animal characters, every child will connect, no matter where they live around the world or what their background is.
A great way to cuddle up with your child…and talk together with God!
Here is a sample prayer:
PRAYER FOR A HAPPY DAY
I thank you for another day.
I know it will be good.
Help me to have a happy heart
And do the things I should.
No matter what, I’ll wear a smile.
I thank you for this day.
Help me to spread your joy around
At home, at school, and play.
Especially in these challenging days, it’s important to encourage children to talk about their feelings. And especially to teach them that God cares about everything they feel or think and wants to hear them talk with Him. This is a perfect book to use to help toddlers and little ones understand the importance of prayer and how to talk with God.
