“Outside of a dog, a book is a man's best friend. Inside of a dog, it's too dark to read.” More
Summary: Together, you and your child can recite an evening prayer to God. This is a bedtime story that doubles as a prayer book.
Type of Reading: bedtime story, family reading, read aloud book, learning to read
Recommended Age: read together: 3 to 8; read yourself: 7 to 9
Interest Level: 3 to 8
Age of Child: Read with a 3-year-old child.
Young Reader Reaction: Although we selected the book several times, this never became a requested item. Months later, though, after s/he began to recite an evening prayer herself, she would 'read' it to her stuffed animals.
Adult Reader Reaction: This is a nice prayer, well suited for the toddler/preschool set. It helps to set the tone and create a pattern for saying prayers before bed.
Pros: The prayer's cadence is soothing (making it great bedtime read in its own right) but also specific about its purpose.
Borrow or Buy: Borrow or Buy. Although it is a nice prayer book, it is only one prayer, and its value as a 'prop' for starting a prayer routine was limited. It may, however, be valuable again as a learning-to-read book.
