When this book first arrived at our house, we originally set down with the intentions of reading it front to back. However, once I got started I changed my mind. What we did end up doing was starting from the front and just focusing on the Lord's Prayer. Once we finished reading that part, and admiring the beautiful illustrations, we then went back through the book and read the segments that went along with each part of the prayer. By breaking it down, I felt that it gave my little one a greater understand of the prayer as a whole. (Posted on 11/5/2016)

“The Lord’s Prayer – Words of Hope and Happiness” was sent to me from Zonderkidz – a division of Zondervan Publishing – free of charge, in exchange for my honest review of it.
“The Lord’s Prayer” is a children’s fiction board book. I love board books because tiny children can enjoy them without the fear of them tearing them to shreds. This storybook was written by Rick Warren, the well-known pastor of Saddleback Church. He has also written many adult non-fiction books, like “The Purpose-Driven Life”, and also Bible studies. The darling illustrations were done by Richard Jesse Watson.
In this book, Pastor Warren explains each line of the Lord’s Prayer so that a child can understand it…in only one or two sentences. Each section also includes a one sentence “Thank You” prayer.
I’d recommend this to any child. I’d also recommend it to teachers, librarians, parents, grandparents, and anyone else who reads to children.

This dynamic duo, author, Rick Warren and illustrator Richard Jesse Watson collaborated on publishing one of the best (in my opinion) books about the Lord’s Prayer for your pre-school age children ever!

They take each line and explain, in easy to understand language, what it means along with a line of thanksgiving. It not only teaches your child the Bible, but also teaches them prayer and praise.

The book its self is a beautifully illustrated hard-cover book and those illustrations don’t stop there…they continue through-out the entire book. Each page will be sure to delight your child as you read them the story of “The Lord’s Prayer”. The pages are board-like pages making it easy for your little one to grasp as they turn the pages and easy to wipe off from those sticky little fingers.

In my opinion, this is one of those “WOW” books.

Disclosure: I was given a copy of this Book by the publisher, Zondervan, Z Blog Squad, blogger review program, for an honest review. I was not required to write a favorable review nor was I compensated for my review. The opinions in this review are my own.
