My thoughts-

I thought Candle Prayers for Kids, by Claire Freedman, was so cute when I first looked at it.  I was even more impressed when I sat down and read the prayers.  I think the prayers would be perfect for children under five, but they would easily work for children up to ten.  These prayers can even be changed if they need to be to suit a specific child, because not every child has a father who is gone or has freckles.

We have used some of the prayers at night and I am looking forward to my eight year-old daughter using this book on a daily basis.  She has a hard time saying prayers sometimes and I think that if she used this book and learned a variety of prayers, then it would be easier for her to say prayers of her own. 

I liked the table of contents.  It was helpful when I was trying to find a specific prayer.  I really enjoyed the illustrations.  They were colorful and realistic.  They would catch any child's eye.  The Lord's prayer at the end of the book was well written.  The prayer was written so many children can understand what the prayer is trying to tell them.

I highly recommend this book.  It is excellent.
