At the beginning of the book, readers will find a note to parents and a table of contents. The table of contents lists all the featured names paralleled with The Lord's Prayer and "Our Prayer," the author's paraphrase. The following Hebrew names of God are included:
- El Shaddai
What I Like:I love the concept! I like that this book teaches children (and parents!) the significance of the many names of God. I like that it uses the real language along with explanations. I like that it parallels all this with a prayer, thereby teaching us to use God's many names when we pray. While the illustrations aren't my favorite, my kids really like them.
What I Dislike: The format can be a bit confusing for reading aloud. The Lord's Prayer and the paraphrase appear to be headings, but text often continues from the previous page. This leads to a jilted reading.
Overall Rating: The book itself is not extraordinary, but because of the uniqueness of content and the rarity of books like this, I'm giving it a rating of Very Good.
