The Lord's Prayer

If you want to teach your child about the Lord’s prayer, check out Rick Warren’s book The Lord’s Prayer. Illustrated by award-winning artist Richard Jesse Watson, it exemplifies the term “picture book”. The simple text, taken from the King James Version of the Bible, is spread like ripe seeds across the pages and accompanied by undeniably gorgeous illustrations that seem to pulse with life. They hold great detail, show a wide ethnic mix of people, a variety of animals, have deep, rich colors, and hold an intangible charm sure to appeal to any reader. The book also includes insights from well-known author Rick Warren. However, the book experience is not complete unless you go online and download a free 46 page curriculum guide. The guide is divided into 5 lessons and an appendix that shows the Lord’s Prayer in sign language. Each lesson includes a Scripture reference, memory verse, Bible truth, teacher note, prayer, opening activity, Bible story, questions to ask, finger plays, a snack discussion, and closing activity.

What I Like: Everything. The book took my breath away. And the thorough curriculum guide makes it a valuable teaching tool.

What I Dislike: Nothing.
