My Little Prayers--Children's Book

Please welcome my first guest reviewer . . .
                                       Book:
Isn't that a sweet look of concentration.  He slowly and methodically read this entire little book.
And gave it a thumbs up!

The illustrated cover by Diane LeFeyer is welcoming . . .

The inside is sweet and precious.  A perfect little book to share with children of any age.  Seriously even a teenager would enjoying reading to a younger child. And might just bring back some sweet and pleasant memories.

Inside you'll find 8 sections filled with prayers.  Sweet pictures.  And scripture.
Section Titles include: My Day, My Mealtime, My Bedtime, My Family and Friends, My Feelings,
My Special Days and my favorite My Time With God.

From the back cover . . .
Help your children discover the power of prayer from an early age.  My Little Prayers introduces classic and modern prayers you can share with your little ones.
With it's compact size, this book is the perfect format for the small hands of toddlers and preschoolers.

I received a complimentary copy from BookLook in exchange for my honest review.
BookLook provided additional information . . .

The bestselling My Little® series, with more than 2 million copies sold, is a compact collection of books that will have a big impact on the hearts of your children. My Little Prayers will help you introduce your children to prayer.
My Little Prayers teaches children both classic and modern prayers surrounding subjects such as mealtimes, bedtime, playtime, time with God, and others as well as prayer for times when children are fearful, happy, or sad. New illustrations in the same perfect format for the small hands of your toddlers and preschoolers make My Little Prayers a wonderful gift for a variety of occasions, and it is just the right size to tuck into a birthday gift bag or Easter basket.
Children will learn a big lesson from this little book: that we can talk to God any time we want and that He always listens.
My additional thoughts . . . Although I enjoyed this sweet little book there are a few things that I would consider before purchasing.  
I am a lover of books.  I have lots of books.  I don't turn down pages in my books.   I try hard to keep them in excellent condition so they can be enjoyed. 
With that said the construction of this book is not one that I would buy for a toddler or preschool child as the publisher suggests.   I would definately buy and read to a very young child.  My 8 year old grandson is old enough to understand the importance of taking care of a book.   Although he gave it a thumbs up this book is not written or intended for 8 year olds.
I wish that the publisher had the fore thought to produce a board book type book in addition to the regular copy.  Although the cover is easily cleaned and soft for little hands.  The pages tear very easily.  
The book is small and compact and a very good value.  Which gets my 5 stars for value for sure.  
I would more likely buy as a gift for a new parent if a board book was available.  
Over all I recommend this book  and it does warrant 5 stars and a 'thumbs up'
