The Lord's Prayer for Children (Baby Blessings)

The Lord’s Prayer for Children (Baby Blessings) is a sturdy board book that holds a precious message about prayer. Plus, with a thick, padded cover, the book is built to last. The text is accompanied by bright, glittery, eye-catching illustrations. On a two page spread, one side gives a line from the prayer from the KJV of the Bible—“Our Father, which art in heaven…”—while the other side uses rhyme to put the idea in child-friendly terms—“Dear God, We feel close to you/ when we pray/ Even though heaven/ seems so far away.”

What I Like: The whimsical illustrations lined with glitter foil hold enormous appeal. I also like the idea of presenting a prayer that kids will likely carry in their hearts their entire lives and putting its concepts into more understandable language. It’s a great tool to help teach children to pray.

What I Dislike: Nothing!

Overall Rating: Excellent

Age Appeal: Even though this book is part of a Baby Blessings line, the publisher lists the reading level at ages 4-8. With the book format, simple text, and short page count (10 pages), I feel it better suits the preschool/toddler age group. But it’s darling enough that older children will find it attractive.

Publisher Info: Standard Publishing, 2011; ISBN: 978-0-784729366; Hardcover Board Book, 10 PGS., $12.99.
