Lucado Treasury of Bedtime Prayers - Children's Book Review and Giveaway

I received product for review from Tommy Nelson Mommies.  The opinions within this post are of my own and I was not influenced in any way.  Please do your own research before purchasing products or using services.  Your opinions and results may differ.

This collection of classic prayers, as well as brand-new prayers by Max and Denalyn Lucado, will help parents who want to make prayer a daily part of their children’s lives.

Prayer is the foundation of a believer’s life. This collection of prayers from Max and Denalyn Lucado offers parents a resource to teach little ones how to talk to God. This prayer collection includes classic prayers that have been updated for today’s young readers, introductory stories for each section, as well as twenty new prayers for little ones written by Max and Denalyn.

Max and Denalyn open the book with an expanded introduction that instructs parents on teaching their children to pray. A helpful prayer builder taken from Max’s trade book Before Amen teaches kids that there are four different kinds of prayers: worship, trust, compassion, and gratitude. This collection of new and classic children’s prayers are divided into ten sections. Children will find it easier to learn to pray with examples showing that prayer is a dialogue with God for all times. Beautiful art by Lisa Alderson complements the keepsake style of the book.

It’s never too early to lay a strong foundation for a child’s faith, and the Lucado Treasury of Bedtime Prayers will help parents do just that.

My Review:

I believe that teaching children how to pray early in life sets a good foundation for life situations.  For several years now, I've prayed with my children every night.  It's a special moment where we lift up praise to God.  Plus, it gives me insight into what my kids' requests or needs are when I hear them pray.

With several prayers of differing lengths, Lucado Treasury of Bedtime Prayers is a perfect resource for children to memorize prayers for different occasions.  Sections are separated so certain prayers can easily be found.  For instance, there's a section just on mealtime prayers.  Most of the prayers are catchy and can be easily retained.  This is a hardcover book with 160 pages.  Animal illustrations throughout the book add darling detail.

Win It!

One person will win a hardcover book copy of Lucado Treasury of Bedtime Prayers.

We don't say prayers at certain times but when the need arises. Prayer can be a great spontaneous need.
