This Little Prayer of Mine--Book Review


*Special Thursday Book Review Post*

Anthony DeStefano recently sent me his latest children’s book, This Little Prayer of Mine. I sat down with each of my three girls and read it to them. I asked their opinion of the book since I’ve never officially written a review for a children’s book before. All three of my girls agreed, This Little Prayer of Mine is an extremely sweet book.

I can think of few more important things to instill in children than the value of prayer. This Little Prayer of Mine engages young readers with sing-song rhymes and splashes of colorful (and humorous) illustrations. The Bible encourages us to pray without ceasing. This Little Prayer of Mine provides real life scenarios of times children will want to lean on God—to talk to him. I enjoyed how the book emphasizes how God hears us at all times and invites us to share with him when we are lonely, sad, scared, joyful and thankful.

As a parent, I appreciate how this lovely book with adorable illustrations has a powerful lesson on every page.

  2. This book sounds lovely. I think I should read it for myself :)

    I'm so glad the paper arrived! And I can't think of a better way to use it then sending cheer up notes to grandma. I do hope she's feeling better soon!

    Cheers,
    Jen
