Such questions can easily go unspoken or unaddressed. However, teaching a child to pray is one of the most important spiritual duties of a parent. That's When I Talk to God by Dan and Ali Marrow is an entertaining tool that a parent can use to teach a child that is is always appropriate to talk to God. As the little girl journeys through her day, she finds multiple opportunities to speak to God. A visit with a friend, a fear of heights, and an act of disobedience are a few examples of her encounters. The little girl also discovers that God speaks to her daily through the Bible, her conscience, and other people.
Illustrated children's books can sometimes capture a child's attention in ways that regular conversation can not. That's When I Talk to God teaches an important lesson by appealing to the mind and the sense of sight. I particularly liked how the authors made a point to mention that God not only hears, but also communicates with children. The book includes verses about prayer and The Lord's Prayer at the end. These could be used for further discussion and learning. I can confidently recommend this book to any parent looking for a book to help teach important lessons on prayer.
That's When I Talk to God is recommended for children between 4 and 8 years of age. I thought the illustrations were beautiful and engaging. However, I suspect that girls may reread this book more than boys. The main character is a girl and many of the illustrations use so-called "girly" colors like pink and purple.

This is the sweetest little book for children. The mom explains to her small child that she can talk to God anywhere, anytime about anything. She encourages her to start the next morning praying to God during the day. As she looks out the window the next morning, she sees flowers, blue sky, clouds, and realizes she can tell God she loves Him, and thank him for making the beautiful things outside her window. As he goes throughout her day, she finds many more things she can pray about. Whether she is thanking God or asking Him to help her.
I love the way the authors explain each thing that children can pray about. That sometimes they can thank God for things, and sometimes they can pray for Him to help them. And the illustrations are beautiful, and help reinforce what the story is telling the child. This is a wonderful way to help children understand what prayer is. I read this book several times to my 2 year old niece, and though I thought the book was a bit old for her, she still loved it, and wanted me to read it over and over. After I finished reading it to her, she sat and looked at the pictures for a while. I think it would better fit 5 to 6 year olds, but younger children understand more than you think!
A huge Thank You to Publisher: David C. Cook and to B&B Media Group for providing this free book for review. I was not required to write a positive review of this book. The opinions are mine alone.
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.
