Bedtime for Baby Book Reviews: The Lord's Prayer by Rick Warren

Several of my friends, who know I review books, often ask me to offer recommendations for books.  As an avid reader and book lover, I am always happy to share.  I know reading changes lives and fostering a love of reading when your child is young opens so many doors for them.  

Last month I shared, 5 Benefits of Reading to Your Little One and featured a pic one of my friends took.  I LOVE this pic of books she has begun reading to her little one.  Her collection looks so much like the collection of books in my kids' rooms with a sprinkling of fairy tales, Dr. Seuss and childhood favorites.  I love the pic so much I decided to use it for a new segment for 2017 titled Bedtime for Baby Book Reviews.  I will post reviews from my partner publishers who are kind enough to provide me with a copy of the book for review in exchange for a post.

In this segment, I will feature reviews of new releases written for readers 7 and under.  I hope you will enjoy this new blog section and I pray you find a book your little one will ask you to read again and again.

The first book in this segment is based upon The Lord's Prayer. The Lord’s Prayer: Words of Hope and Happiness written by author and famed pastor Rick Warren is a wonderfully illustrated commentary of The Lord's Prayer.  Warren, known for his bestselling book - The Purpose Driven Life - does a wonderful job presenting detailed reflections on the passages of The Lord's Prayer.

The illustrations burst with bold text and a multi-cultural faces amidst a variety of watercolor backgrounds.  A beautifully written reflection that expounds on the familiar prayer in a hardbound book.

This iconic prayer is paired with flowing illustrations by award-winning artist Richard Jesse Watson and thoughtful insights by bestselling author Rick Warren, resulting in a book that rejuvenates the familiar prayer for a younger audience. Using poetic scripture from the King James Version, The Lord’s Prayer: Words of Hope and Happiness helps familiarize children with real biblical text while also presenting contemporary illustrations and insightful words that make this beautiful prayer come alive.

Buy It: The Lord’s Prayer: Words of Hope and Happiness is available wherever Zondervan books are sold including Amazon, Barnes and Noble, Walmart and more.

Many thanks to Booklook for the opportunity to review this book.
