Summary: This collection of rhyming prayers is designed to teach children that it's good to talk with God throughout the day. The book introduces God in a non-denominational, non-sectarian way (i.e., if you believe in God, you have a home here). It also shares the idea that prayer to Him is appropriate throughout the day.
Type of Reading: bedtime story, family reading, read aloud book
Recommended Age: read together: 0 to 4; read yourself: 6 to 8
Interest Level: 0 to 4
Age of Child: Started reading with child at 3 years old. We are still reading at 5 years.
Young Reader Reaction: This is infrequently requested, but we're asked for it just often enough that it can't be put away. This is clearly a comfort book: the only visible reaction may be a thumb in the mouth.
Adult Reader Reaction: Bigger kids start asking questions about God and the nature of prayer. It's a good lead-in to other discussions of faith, religion.
Pros: Simple rhymes and easy pictures make it accessible to everyone.
