Book Review: This Little Prayer of Mine

Summary: Author Anthony DeStefano’s adult books, The Prayers God Always Says Yes To and A Travel Guide to Heaven, have sold a quarter-million copies. Illustrator Mark Elliott’s cherished artwork has appeared in popular picture books and novels for young readers, including Gail Carson Levine’s ever-popular Princess Tales series.

Now, these acclaimed inspirational experts have come together to create This Little Prayer of Mine, a beautiful and alluring book designed to guide children into a very simple, real and expressive relationship with God.

Through engaging rhymes and alluring illustrations, This Little Prayer of Mine shows children—and their parents and grandparents—that complete dependence on God is what brings peace and fulfillment. It invites children to know and believe that God is always just a simple prayer away and that He longs to respond to them with a resounding, “Yes!”

This Little Prayer of Mine appeals to readers from all different faiths. Easy-reader format allows children to read alone, or with someone older, and encourages them to openly express their fears, thanks, and needs directly to God.

Gracie has been learning to read in school and is doing a great job at it. She is so proud of herself. This book has been allowing her to broaden her knowledge of words. She is doing very well with it. She needs a little help now and then but otherwise it's been fine. She loves learning about God and asks questions all the time. This book has helped her in learning that God can do anything, all we have to do is ask. Beautiful illustrations! Mathew loves looking at the pictures.
