loreallepaAge: 35-44Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5Excellent way to teach children to pray!February 16, 2017loreallepaAge: 35-44Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5I'm always so, so excited to take new books into my Sunday School class. The little ones get so excited when I pull a new book out of my bag!
I absolutely loved this book, and so did they! On one page, there is a verse from the Lords Prayer featured. On the next page, a child friendly description of what that verse means. It was a great way to break down The Lord's Prayer and explain it to them in a way they would understand.
The illustrations are fabulous. Richard Jesse Watson illustrated the book and let me tell you, they are beautiful. They made more relatable to kids. The little guys loved looking at the pictures and pointing out something new they saw in each one.
This book is definitely one I would recommend. It would be a great asset in teaching little ones to pray! And would be a fabulous addition to any classroom.
This book was provided to me free of charge by Book Look in return for my honest review. The opinions I have expressed are my own.
Fitzysmom5 Stars Out Of 5Review from Rambles of a SAHMJanuary 5, 2017FitzysmomQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5I love the simplicity of a small child's prayer. There's no hesitation and worry of using the right words. They don't worry about Thees and Thous they just lay out their requests and rightly assume that God hears them and will answer.
When Jesus taught His disciples the Lord's Prayer He used that same simplicity. It is a wonderful example of how we should approach the Father and an easy template to teach our children. Rick Warren and Richard Jesse Watson have taken these timeless words and added beautiful illustrations and thoughts that will encourage you and your children to not only learn this portion of Scripture but to also apply it in all situations.
I like that The Lord's Prayer: Words of Hope and Happiness is presented in this new board book format. This is definitely a book that will be read over and over in our house so durability in the hands of little ones counts!
I also appreciate the subtle way that Rick Warren puts the Scripture into repeatable segments and also includes a short thought on what that particular segment means. The King James Version is beautifully lyrical but often the verbiage is confusing to little ones (and sometimes adults). The illustrations are stunningly life-like and had us all mesmerized.
I heartily recommend this book to all families. If you are looking for a new way to help your kids learn the Lord's Prayer this book is a great resource.
I received a copy of this book to facilitate my review.
