This Little Prayer of Mine

Nothing Compares to Childlike Faith
From the Publisher:

I know you're up in heaven, God,
and can hear my voice from there.
I'm just a little child.
Will you answer my short prayer?

So begins this delightful book that affirms God's readiness to answer our prayers, no matter what our age.

With engaging rhymes and beautiful illustrations, This Little Prayer of Mine assures children that God is always near--watching, listening, caring, and eager to respond to their requests. They'll also learn that prayer isn't just about asking for things, but about sharing their feelings of sadness and uncertainty as well as of thanksgiving and joy.
Most importanly, This Little Prayer of Mine reminds children—and those who love them—that they can trust God to tenderly care for them, no matter what the future holds.

This Little Prayer of Mine
I love this:
"And when my heart is very sad,
and tears roll down my face,
please help me be happy
so a smile take their place."
and this:
"For puppies, pies and Ice Cream,
my family and my friends.
But most of all I'm grateful
for you love that never ends."

Please Note this book is from my personal library and I was not comphensated in any way for this review
is a very sweet book. My son loves it. He will be 6 tomorrow, he is able to connect with every part of this prayer. Happiness, sadness, pain, ect. and the illastrations are beautiful & perfect, from a little girl with a broken doll, to a little boy being left out. I think Anothony DeStefano did a great job with This Little Prayer of Mine. My son and I both love the way the words flow together from page to a poem, or even a song. This Little Prayer of Mineis a VERY easy read and he is able to read it on his own, which I love!This Little Prayer of Minewould be a perfect additon for anyone who has little one who is learning to read and loves Jesus!! :)
