This Little Prayer of Mine

This Little Prayer of Mine by Anthony DeStefano

If you have small children or grandchildren this is the perfect book to explain prayer to them. It is beautifully written and illustrated and is a perfect bedtime story. I read it to my one year old grandson, and while I know he didn't understand right now, he was captivated by the lovely illustrations. I will continue to read it to him as he gets older. This would also be a good pre-teen read as it explains in verse form that God hears all their prayers and they need not be long drawn out. Sometimes children hear the adults pray in Sunday School or in church and they think they need to use the same kind of 'grown-up' words in order for God to hear them. This book lets them know that God hears all prayers both big and small.

Waterbrook Multnomah Publishers has provided me with a complimentary copy of this book for review purposes.
