{This Little Prayer of Mine} Book Review & Give away!

I have a secret passion for Children's books, perhaps my usual 40 borrowed books from the Library or our overflowing bookshelves are proof of that! And we've found a new favorite!

I was recently contacted by Anthony DeStefano to review his new book for children This Little Prayer of Mine 
Anthony Stefano has written books for adults, but this is his first time with a book for the littles!

We were thrilled to quickly receive the copy, cuddle up on the bed and dig in to this wonderful rhyming guide to prayer for kids. All three of my children ages 5, 3 and 20 months, sat transfixed by both the rhythmic style of writing as well as the great illustrations (By Mark Elliott). They asked me to read it over and over again, and still after a week it's in the favorite's pile!

What I especially loved about his book is that it gave vivid examples of when to pray, in thanksgiving, for forgiveness and when they need Him. The book illustrates kids of different ages praying when they are scared or lonely, asking for forgiveness for sins and then also asking God to deepen their relationship with Him by helping them be more Christlike! I found many spiritual truths in this book that we are constantly trying to teach our own children, but in words and illustrations that children can easily understand!

This book has been endorsed by the National Day of Prayer and has had many good things said about it which you can read on Anthony Stefano's blog {please see link above).

Although the Book hasn't hit the shelves quite yet {to be released February 16, 2010} you can get a great deal by pre-ordering your copy of this book at the low price of  $8.76 ($12.99 regularly) + shipping from Amazon! Click on the link in my side bar to take a hold of this deal!
