This children's book portrays a wonderful story that teaches children that God is always listening for their prayers and that God speaks to them in many ways. The captivating illustrations are inspiring and comforting. With a durable hardcover, this book will likely become a regular bedtime story and one that children will want to keep for their own children as they grow up. The back pages of this book contain some Bible verses to supplement the story's message. A letter written from a grandpa to parents and grandparents is printed on the last page to motivate them to encourage their children and grandchildren to talk to God throughout each day.
Disclosure of Material Connection: I received this book free through The B & B Media Group, Inc. book review bloggers program. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own. I am disclosing this in accordance with the Federal Trade Commission's 16 CFR, Part 255vf: "Guides Concerning the Use of Endorsements and Testimonials in Advertising."
"Praying is just talking to God," Mom explained. "Do you only talk to me once or twice a day?"
"No," I giggled. "That's silly--I talk to you all day long!"
"Exactly!" she said. "And you can talk to God all day long too."
I thought about that for a minute. "But what would I talk to God about?"
"Anything you want to," Mom said. "Try it tomorrow. I bet you'll find all sorts of things to talk to Him about."
Thus begins the child's eye-opening journey as she finds more and more things to share with her Heavenly Father. We see her turn her failures, successes, concerns, questions, and feelings into conversations with God. By the end of the book, she's eager to hear what God has to say to her--through His Word.
This book brought to mind my first conversations with God. I remember struggling to find the right words in spite of that niggling suspicion that the things in my life weren't worthy to put before Him. Then I learned that I could simply pour out my heart and trust my Heavenly Father to sort through it all. I was older than the girl in the story when I learned this lesson, but aren't we all encouraged to become like little children in our faith? (Matthew 18)
This is a great story to give to any child. I think it would provoke interesting questions and conversations about how little ones can know God and be close to Him. I love the idea of children making God a central part of their lives early on. Dan and Ali have given us a wonderful tool for helping to make that happen.
She discovers (with guidance) that she can thank God for what she likes, ask for forgiveness when she does wrong, and pray for the sick, among other things. And she also discovers these things in the car, while playing soccer, or visiting a friend.
The girl also goes on to ask her mother about how God would talk to her. Mom answers her about some of the different ways God communicates with us, such as our conscience, and through His word.
This is an adorable hardcover book with beautifully done pictures that are sure to engage your young children. My daughters are eight and five and they were both completely enthralled by the story. My eight year old read it to herself several times as well, when I didn't have time to read it right away. I asked my girls if they liked it and they both said yes.
This book would make a great anytime gift (Easter, Kindergarten graduation, or whatever) gift for your favorite child. And even better it teaches them about God. Also good for church nurseries or libraries. There is a letter to parents from Lee Strobel at the end of the book.
