Prayers--Childrens Book Review
About (provided by BookLook)
What I thought...
Lovely. It's a book that's not a book.
It is described as a prayer journal for young believers. I really wouldn't call it a journal. At least not the normal sense.
It's two little books in one actually.
First there is the little book Prayers. It is filled with prompts to encourage young minds to think and discover . . .
There are suggestions to color, doodle and draw.
Some of the question prompts are:
What are you thankful for today?
Do you know someone who needs to feel God's love at the moment?
Write the name of a worship song that makes you
Happy. Think. Sing.
The second little book Answered Prayers is similar. It's not what I expected. I thought it would follow the first books prompts giving the reader an opportunity to write about answered prayers.
Here's one of the pages. . .
This book is similar in that the reader is given prompts. But it's more like a workbook with scripture prompts.
The books are packaged in a clear portfolio type of cover.
You can see the sparkly glitter through the cover
The illustrations in both are charming. The cover is engaging. The colors are bright and cheerful. And girly.
I would not recommend for boys.
I looked at one major retailer to see if there was a boys version and didn't find one. I wish there was.
I wasn't clear on the suggested audience. The description says
'young children'. I'm thinking more older elementary.
I highly recommend but I would definitely read through the books to see if your child is the right age to really understand and appreciate.
I received a complimentary copy from BookLook.
This was a great book and deserves a 5 star rating.
