At each stage in the child’s life – before birth, right after the birth, through several stages of childhood, and on into adulthood when the child marries – the mother repeats the phrase, “For you, my child, I prayed.”
The author also illustrated the book with colored pencil sketches on every page.
What I Like: I like the idea for the book, that of showing our children how we love and care for them and pray for them everyday.
What I Dislike: However, the text is written in rhyme. Both the rhyme scheme and the rhythm is off in several places throughout the book making the text a bit jarring.
Overall Rating: Good.
Age Appeal: No age group is given, but I would say 6-12 would be appropriate.
