tell me about PRAYER by Stephen Elkins

Train ’Em Up is an interactive, fun-filled, and affordable series that uses a train locomotive theme for teaching kids core Christian beliefs and principles. 






In Tell Me about Prayer, a friendly train conductor, Mr. Steve, teaches kids what prayer is all about, how we should talk to God, and why our conversations are so important to Him. Through bold graphics and interactive songs and stories, Train ’Em Up makes it easy for parents and teachers to explain biblical concepts like prayer in a way that helps with attention, memorization, and recall while building a solid faith foundation. Each book in the series includes a CD with sing-along songs and narrated stories with sound effects, plus a colorful sticker sheet!

My Thoughts:  tell me about PRAYER is a cute book perfect for reading to little ones.  There are a few simple scripture references which tie in with the key thoughts.  The use of the New Living Version (NLV) Bible translation for The Lord's Prayer was a bit odd to me as I am so King James when it comes to The Lord's Prayer.  It was different but that's no biggie.

The pastel colored illustrations reminded me of Precious Moments figurines with the oval, cherub faces and praying hands.  The accompanying CD contained some easy to follow songs which proved to be a hit with the little ones.  I confess even I had a song or two in my head after singing with the kiddos.  

Overall a pretty good book for the little ones and new readers are sure to enjoy the easy to read text.  tell me about PRAYER would also be a great book for grandparents or persons with low vision to read to little ones as it is full of big, bold easy to read text.
