This Little Prayer of Mine by Anthony DeStefano is now one of our new night time favorites. This charming book is a sweet rhyming story about a little boy praying to God. I found this to be a great tool to talk about prayer with your child. For us it has been a springboard to discussing prayer when you are scared, sad, happy, and overwhelmed with blessings. I particularly liked that the book showed that prayer is a conversation with God and incorporated a variety of situations, including temptation. It was also refreshing that it was not a rote book but one that explored saying thank you, asking for help, and asking to become more like Him. My daughter (4) loves our new book and when I don't have time to read, she will sit and talk through the beautiful illustrations. I'm always looking for new additions to our library that help instill a variety of spiritual foundations into our children. This book is a perfect addition!
I was provided a copy of this book by Waterbrook/Multnomah Publishing Group in exchange for my honest review.
