Now that I have a kid, I get to review children’s books, too! First up: 100 Prayers God Loves to Hear, which also comes with 2 CD’s of 100 Praise Songs that correspond with the book, which I received through Booksneeze’s book review program. The prayers in this book range from those taken from Scripture and well-known prayers (like “The Serenity Prayer) to new ones. It includes prayers for the numerous different situations your children experience, such as different times of day or year. For each prayer, the book provides some context for why it may be used, how you can apply the message to your own life, some food for thought, and which song corresponds to it. I love the variety among the types of prayers and the suggestions for application so your kids can see how they can apply it to their own lives. I must say I enjoy the book more the CD, whose songs are pretty cheesy, although there is a nice variety to the song styles. Overall, it’s a great introduction for your kids to prayer and its use in our lives, and I look forward to reading to my new little one!
