The Lord’s Prayer: Words of Hope and Happiness by Rick Warren is a wonderful book for children. I learned the prayer this title features when I was 4-5 years old and it has stuck with me ever since. I feel this book would be a great choice if you are wanting a child in your life to also learn this prayer. It list more than the verses but also the author adds a comment or two on what each verse means in a way a child can understand.
Not just the verses but the meaning behind the verse is very important when deciding to take anything to heart, especially when it comes to the word of God. I feel this book puts the meaning in the most simplistic form very well.
The life-like illustrations are beautiful. They invoke deep feelings, emotions, and capture this prayer well. Each page spread features a single verse from this prayer. The prayer script covers the illustrations and either to the right or left is the blurb from the author. There’s always either Thank You to God for a specific thing, a declaration, or a request that follows on each page spread as well.
At the end of the book there’s a note from Rick Warren about the importance of prayer and why we do it.
I like that this book is in board back format. It will last for many years to come and I hope to use this title to help teach all three of my children the Lord’s Prayer. I definitely recommend it.
