Prayers for Girls, Thomas Nelson 


"Prayers for Girls and Prayers for Boys are great choices for parents looking to introduce children to the importance of prayer. 

The perfect impulse purchase for moms and grandmas with little ones, these padded board books are complete with adorable art and an affordable price! They are a great year-round purchase but make an especially perfect gift for Easter baskets! Bright, colorful, and with the right amount of text to hold a child's attention, these books also have handles for little hands to carry.

Prayers for Girls comes in a vibrant, eye-catching magenta—the perfect gift for any little girl for Sunday school or birthday party. Prayers for Boys comes in a fun, happy blue, and it also serves as a great gift for any occasion. Prayers for Girls and Prayers for Boys go beyond merely an attractive cover—they seek to teach little ones the value of prayer. "


My Thoughts:

I was so excited last month to be invited into the Tommy Nelson Mommy Blogger Ambassador program.  Not only will I be able to review wonderful faith-based products each month with my family, but I will also get to offer the same item I reviewed as a giveaway for one lucky reader to win.

For April, I was given the opportunity to choose from a handful of items, including their new Prayers for Boys/Prayers for Girls books, On the Farm: Cocka Doodle Doo the Right Thing animated DVD and Hermie & Friends: I Will Tell the Truth & Be Careful What I Say animated DVD.  Because the DVDs were geared more towards children ages 4-7, I opted to review the Prayers for Girls book, which has a suggested age of 1-4 years old. 

I was excited to receive this book, as my oldest daughter Savannah has begun to learn and recite prayers at bedtime and helps say grace at the dinner table.  I couldn't wait to surprise her with her very own prayer book, which comes with a plastic handle for easy carrying, wherever she wants to bring this book. :-)

Upon receiving the book, I read through it first to see the type of content it had, and if I thought Savannah would be able to understand it.  This little prayer book, which is also offered in a boys version, offers an introductory to prayer for little ones.  The text is easy to understand, and has cute colorful illustrations that will help even the youngest of children grasp the text, and overall importance of prayer.  

The plastic handle is great, but I also love how this board book is padded for added softness and durability.  I don't have to limit the places I let Savannah bring her Prayers for Girls book, as I know this small padded book can hold its own, and will not break easily.

I will definitely be picking up another one of these prayer books for Arabella to have, as she loves sneaking off with Savannah's copy to flip through the pages. :-)

If you have been looking for a great way to introduce your toddler/pre-schooler to the importance of prayer, then you will love this book, which is available in both boys and girls version.  These board books would also make wonderful gift ideas, and will be enjoyed and read for years to come.
