The Lord's Prayer book

I was recently invited by Zonderkidz to review one of their books - The Lord's Prayer: Words of Hope and Happiness by Rick Warren. While I have reviewed no shortage of children's books on the Lord's Prayer over the years, I liked the photo of the cover and decided to check it out. I'm oh so glad I did! It is excellent, and while geared for children, adults will get much out of it as well. I'm very happy to share it with you today . . . 

The Lord's Prayer: Words of Hope and Happiness 
Author - Rick Warren

Ages - 4-8

Favorite Features -
  • Makes the Lord's Prayer understandable to children - and adults alike
  • Each page is a line from the prayer - includes an explanation and short, simple prayer.
  • Incredible illustrations!
  • Sturdy board book - will hold up to children reading it.
  • Gives families much to think and talk about!
Zonderkidz says; "This iconic prayer is paired with flowing illustrations by award-winning artist Richard Jesse Watson and thoughtful insights by bestselling author Rick Warren, resulting in a book which rejuvenates the familiar prayer for a younger audience. Using poetic scripture from the King James Version,  The Lord’s Prayer: Words of Hope and Happiness helps familiarize children with real biblical text while also presenting contemporary illustrations and insightful words making this beautiful prayer come alive."

I completely agree. I love this book and am looking forward to reading it and talking about it with my grandsons! This is a book on the Lord's Prayer which could - and should - become a family favorite to pass to future generations.
