The amazing invitation in Scripture to actually talk to the Father in Heaven through His Son, is something that every child needs to know.

The world is often a frightening place to little ones. This lovely little book, so beautifully illustrated, helps us teach little ones about a kind, good, powerful Heavenly Father Who cares and hears our prayers.

It also serves to link generations in a communal perspective because the prayers in this wee book were offered up by grandparents and parents of past generations. I am delighted that it is still available! In a world where selfish ambition drives and greed thrives, this little book directs focus to another realm and encourages excellence: God, make my life a little song/That comforteth the sad,/That helpeth others to be strong/ And makes the singer glad.

I had this same book when I was a little girl. I was enchanted by Eloise Wilkin's illustrations, which are alone reason to buy this book! Her style is evocative of I. Hummel. The children depicted in her drawings are so adorable! As for the prayers themselves, they are short enough for very small children to learn. You will see alot of traditional language, though. This may be difficult for a small child to understand (i.e. Thee and Thou). However, I feel this book is well worth buying!

Now that my 3-year-old son is allowed to look at books in his bed before he goes to sleep, this is always one of his first choices. A testament to the illustration. Sweet and pure.

Children memorize what they hear. Here is a wonderful book of prayers full of praise and goodness to fill their minds, good and lovely things for them to "think on."

This is a book that my grandfather used to read to me when I was little, and it practically makes me choke up when I read it to my daughter now. This is a wonderful book to give to kids. Even if you are not a religious person, this is a book that encourages loving behavior and what parent could not use more of that? Read it to your kids, discuss the themes within, and I feel certain you will agree that this is a great way to help your kids become more loving and thoughtful (and it does all this without being preachy or using frightening themes - bonus!).

Over the years that I have taught Sunday school I have used this book on many occasions. The words in it are simple enough for small children to say and meaningful enough for us older children to use.

My 5 year old loves to say a prayer every night and each morning. This book has prayers for all occasions. They are simple for her to remember. The illustrations are wonderful and fit in great with the prayers. She knows which are night time and day time prayers by looking at the pictures. You can never go wrong with Little Golden Books. I look forward to sharing this for years to come!

This book has been around a long time. When my grandson was little his mother and father read this book to him each night along with several books he was allowed to choose. When I visited him he asked me to read the book, even before his afternoon nap. Ageless......

I bought this book for my infant granddaughter. I was looking for the simple prayers I remember and the only one that is in this book that is familiar is "A Great Gray Elephant". I was hoping for the dinner grace
"God is Great, God is Good, let us thank him for this food. Amen".

Also some of the words have changed. I suppose for the better but I was a bit disappointed. Not sure if it will get used as much as I hoped.
