5 Stars

ABOUT THE BOOK -
A delightful companion prayer book to the popular Candle Bible for Kids. Jo Parry's distinctively bold and vibrant illustrations complement a combination of traditional and modern prayers by Claire Freedman, author of the Benjamin Bear series. Candle Prayers for Kids helps to bring prayer and talking to God into the life of every child.

MY REVIEW -
This is a great tool to use when teaching a child how to pray. The pictures in this book are gorgeous, definitely very appealing to children. There are all kinds of prayers in here - 
*best friend moved away
*help at school
*afraid of storms
*prayers for pets
and so many more!
Its all broken up into chapters so its easy to find what they will need for the day. You could even have the child explain what kind of prayer they feel they need and have them help find one. I think this is a great way to teach kids that there really is a prayer for EVERYTHING! I pray all the time, for everything that happens in my life, good or bad, I pray about it. I think it is so important to teach kids that as well. You can never start too young. This book is perfect for those younger ones - it is simple enough and so cute that they will love it!
