This Little Prayer of MIne

This Little Prayer of MineFound a new book I love.

It's called This Little Prayer of Mine by Anthony DeStefano.

It's a hardback children's book that teaches kids how to pray. I've read it to my kids the past two nights and they love the pictures (it's illustrated by Mark Elliott.) It's really easy to read and has a nice sing-songy rhythm. My kids are mad, though that I won't let them hold it or "read" it in bed...I don't want the pages wrinkled!

R. surprised me when he asked me to go back to a page we'd already read. He said the "path" page. There's a page that talks about asking God for help with choosing the right path. R. knew which path the little boy in the story should choose. I was amazed at how he knew an abstract concept like choosing school over choosing the playground.


My little boy is growing up.

The picture on the last page always makes me tear up-it's a mom and dad tucking in their little girl. =)

This book and its author are highly praised within the Christian community including by The National Day of Prayer
