Through engaging rhymes and alluring illustrations, This Little Prayer of Mine shows children—and their parents and grandparents—that complete dependence on God is what brings peace and fulfillment. It invites children to know and believe that God is always just a simple prayer away and that He longs to respond to them with a resounding, “Yes!”

My Review

This is such a wonderful book. The pictures are beautiful and the poetry is sweet. It's an easy read book for families and children. The perfect book for bedtime. The size of the book is large for those little kids hands, too. Honestly, this will be a wonderful book for a child's bookshelf.
