The Gift of Prayer

One of the greatest things we as parents and teachers can teach our children is how to communicate with, worship, and love best friend, praying, God, communicationthe Creator.

Amy’s Best Friend, Prayers of a Child by Ernest Rosenberg is a delightful children’s book about prayer. It encourages children from two on up to communicate with God in a very natural way. Beginning readers and writers will learn how to begin journaling their own prayers. While I explored the Kindle version, my son, daughter-in-law, and grandson checked out the paperback.

My son said that though the book would certainly be interesting to preschoolers, the target audience seems to be those that are already reading and writing. He went on to say, “If I had the book as a kid, I would have probably used the extra pages in the back to write prayers as recommended—and I think the text does a good job of encouraging writing a conreading good bookversation with God rather than just requests.”

In addition to the children’s book, the author has also published a separate journal and a coloring book. Perhaps one day he’ll consider producing a hardcover (or faux leather) version of the journal.

If you are looking for a meaningful Christmas present for a child or grandchild this season, you might want to check out this book!
