"Your name is special, God.
Whenever I hear it,
I remember how wonderful you are
and how much you love me."
The book also includes a section called “The Lord’s Prayer with Selected Signs,” that shows simple sign language children can do as they recite the Prayer. There are also two short prayers for children, both with sign language instructions. Two songs, with words and music, and a short poem, can be found in the back of the book.
The illustrations, by Taia Morley, that are included with the Lord’s Prayer text, are bright and colorful. The sign language instructions are illustrated with black and white sketches, but these pages are brightened up with orange butterflies.
What I like: I liked the whole book. It was much more than I expected, with the added sign language illustrations, songs and poem.The story was written well and the illustrations helped enhance the story line.
What I dislike: Nothing.
Overall Rating: Excellent.
Age Appeal: 3 – 6.
