My Own Little Prayer Book Hardcover

*I received a copy from the author. This does not affect my review.*

I am very happy after reading this book! I found the style and format easy to read, and something that’s suitable for all ages, that can be enjoyed by both children and their parents as they draw closer to each other and to God’s Word while reading though this. An easy to understand guide to help introduce children to praying and to strengthen their faith as they learn to develop this vital skill. Each page has a verse and easy to understand examples that many children will be able to relate to, then a sample prayer on the opposite page.

I enjoyed the artwork, and the story in this one was fun to read. Not anything really new, but a good story with plenty of visuals for beginning readers and young children. With bright colors and easy to read sentences, I can easily see this being something children enjoy reading.

I enjoyed this story, but didn’t love it, and was irritated to find ‘x-tra’ was used for ‘X’ in the story. I’ve always been picky about this sort of book/style of teaching for that reason, and just wish misspellings or using words like X-ray weren’t taken so often as they feel like cheating or laziness more often that not. I did enjoy the art, and most of the letters and their sentences were easy to read, and good for beginners.
