    My review:

    I have two children in my home in this age group. My 7 year old can read this book on his own. This book is a compilation of prayers-- at least 10 are based on scripture, more than half of the poems have rhyming phrases, the book is broken into sections:

    Thank You, God

    A New Day

    God's Wonderful World

    Family and Friends

    All God's Children

    Mealtimes

    Hear My Prayer!

    Help Me Lord!

    Bedtime

    While We Sleep

    Special Days

    It has an index of first lines and sources at the back of it for easy reference.

    The poems are mostly kid friendly, although I'm not sure all the language chosen will be in your 5-7 year olds vocabulary. Some examples are in a St. Patrick prayer- purify us, or beneath us to sustain us, but the poem uses all the words that are developmentally taught- above, beneath, before, behind, around- so it is appropriate conceptually and the concepts are appropriate to raise their awareness of God's ability to work in our lives. We found the poems appealing, comforting, helpful, and child friendly.

    The pictures are colorful, friendly, represent different ethnicities, have child friendly settings, the people are unique and I think most kids will find them charming (but their heads are big, necks really thin, eyes tiny , and noses on ALL people rather round and large). The clothing, setting, and toys are all timeless, so the book will span many generations.

    A few poems were unique and some parents might wonder, but most pointed the reader to our Big God, His Son, and their character and presence in all of our life.

    Pg. 81 From ghoulies and ghosties, and long-legged beasties, and things that go bump in the night, Good Lord, deliver us! (traditional Cornish prayer)

    Pg. 86 Matthew, Mark, Luke and John, Bless the bed that I lie on. Four corners to my bed, Four angels round my head. Traditional

    Overall I liked the book, and think even younger children would enjoy the prayers shared with them in a read aloud. I thank Kregel for the chance to review this beautiful and timeless book. Prayer is an important skill in the believers life and this book gives many examples to make it concrete for our children.

    I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review from the publisher.

    This book is comprised of 11 chapters, breaking the 99 prayers into groupings like "Thank You, God!", " Bedtime", and "Special Days". Each of the 99 prayers are easy enough for my beginner reader to read (with a little help!), and they are short enough to keep her attention.

    The illustrations are whimsical and fun for 5-7 year olds who have grown out of the need for bright primary colors. They are expressive and inclusive in the age ranges, genders and skin colors.

    Overall, this is a great book to have in your library for the little ones.

    99 Prayers for Children as soon as you pick it up you see the beautifully illustrated book, and it makes you want to turn the pages. There are Prayers for every day, Prayers for special days, Graces, Blessings, Praises.

    The prayers are geared for children, but found myself shaking my head yes, for they touched all.

    Example: God made the sun, and God made the trees, God made the mountains, and God made me.

    The rainbow high above us so beautiful and free. When we look up its Gods love we see.

    So very true, and that is exactly how we feel, how I want my children to appreciate what God has given us.

    This sweet book has been used every day since it arrived, and will continue to be!

    I received this book through Kregels Blogger Tour, and was not required to give a positive review.
