In this book a child is taken into the world of relationships with their Creator in a colorful, down to earth, easy to understand manner. It is like a breath of fresh-air.
The storyline is based around the daily living of a child and in these situation Ms. Omartian weaves the many ways the child can interact with the Lord during them. For example, a baseball accidentally going through a window and the emotions the child is feeling, fear and sorrow. The story tells them how God is always ready to forgive us no matter what we do, if we will just go to Him and talk and ask for forgiveness. Through these situations they begin to understand that God longs to share their lives with them, in both good and bad times. They realize praying is freely talking with God, and not some scary thing Believers are required to do. The illustrations are priceless and truly bring the story to life with brilliant color and great facial features. I really enjoyed them.
I loved this book and would highly encourage every one who has a child in their life that they would like to see have more communication with the Lord. and more understanding of the importance of talking with Him, to purchase this book. This book is a real faith builder! A great fun learning experience and a must for every young believer, and I sincerely mean that. Exceptional!

Rather than reading the book as a whole, I would recommend reading a page at a time (perhaps at bedtime prayers) and discussing it. Splitting up the book into parts would help engage a child's attention and keep the breadth of content from being overwhelming. If used in this way, I think that What Happens When I Talk to God? would make an excellent guide for parents wanting to teach their children to pray.
In What Happens When I Talk to God? Omartian takes her passion for prayer and shares the message that "It's never too early to teach a child to pray."
Aimed at ages 3-7, Omartian helps children understand the importance of prayer, what prayer is, why God wants them to pray, when they should pray and what they should pray about. Children learn that God loves them and that's why they should pray. And they can pray anytime and anywhere for anything. The book encourages children to be young `prayer warriors' and affirms a child's importance in God's eyes.
What Happens When I Talk to God is a book for adults to read with their children. The narrative may be a bit long for three-year-old children, but they'll absorb what their particular attention span allows.
The artwork, by Shari Warren is bright, colorful, inviting and attractive. The best part of the illustrations is the children themselves. They are from every race and as the mother and grandmother of a racially mixed family, I applaud this aspect of the book.
Armchair Interviews says: The Power of Prayer for Boys and Girls is enhanced with Stormie Omartian's book, What Happens When I Talk to God?
It tells what we can pray for and how we can pray and when and where we can pray; it tells us at the end of most pages to be thankful for something that was described on that page. The only page that begins to address "What Happens When I Talk to God?" in my opinion, is page 30, the second to last one, which talks about God hearing and answering and dwells on "me" being patient for those answers.
I suppose I was hoping for a book that was more illustrative of how God has worked through people's prayers, through the prayers of children, not just a book that goes over practical biblical application. I know I would have liked to have heard how Stormie would talk to a child about the transformative power of prayer in the soul of the pray-er, or how we even know that God is there listening to us and isn't just some made up thing (which are the good questions my kids are asking), but that wasn't touched on. It didn't specifically talk about what the "power" of prayer was, though it did state that "praying with other people is very powerful" and "my prayers have power because I am valuable to God."
Prayer is an intangible kind of thing. I don't have a problem telling my kids HOW or WHY we pray. Like this book shows, the bible gives us lots of instruction on it, and I can relate that to my kiddos.Read more ›
