99 Prayers for Children 

This book is a companion to 99 Stories From the Bible.  It contains traditional and contemporary prayers.  It provides young children with a variety of ways to pray during different times of the day and year.

About the Author-

Juliet David currently lives in London with her family.  She has written many Bible activity books and children’s stories.

My thoughts-

I thought 99 Prayers for Children was an excellent companion book to 99 Stories Bible.

I liked the table of contents, which had the prayers in different categories, like mealtimes and bedtime.  I appreciated the index of first lines, because it was easier to find a specific prayer that way instead of looking in the different sections.

The prayers were based on traditional prayers and Bible verses.  Some of them were from different authors like St. Patrick.

My daughter has a hard time thinking of a prayer to say.  This book is perfect for her, because she can pick a prayer that best fits the time of day or how she is feeling at that time.  I think it will help her become more confident when praying, so that when she is older she can say her own prayers.

I really liked the illustrations.  They were realistic and matched the prayer that was being said.  They will be able to help young children understand the meaning of the prayer and how it relates to them.

This book would be a great addition to a child’s book collection.  It would help them draw nearer to God.

I recommend it.
