Candle Prayers for Kids

About The Book:  A delightful companion prayer book to the popular Candle Bible for Kids. Jo Parry's distinctively bold and vibrant illustrations complement a combination of traditional and modern prayers by Claire Freedman, author of the Benjamin Bear series. Candle Prayers for Kids helps to bring prayer and talking to God into the life of every child.
About The Author/Illustrator:  Claire Freedman lives on the Essex coast. She is the author of a number of children’s books, and has also written for Little Tiger Press. When not writing, Claire spends her time sailing, walking in the countryside, and traveling.  Jo Parry trained at Bournemouth Arts Institute before becoming a full-time artist. She illustrates mainly greetings cards, fine art, and children’s books, adapting her fun, colorful style to each of these genres. She creates her characteristic style using an Apple Mac, and is fulfilling a lifelong dream working as an illustrator. Jo lives in Bournemouth, on England’s south coast.
My Thoughts About The Book:  This book is precious.  The illustrations are bright and fun and the prayers are short, sweet, and relative to a child.  The book is a great way to teach a child just how to pray about things that touch their lives.  I loved the variety of children represented in the book.  I loved the prayers.  I have used this book in my Time for Children minutes at my church and the children seem to look forward to me pulling out the book and opening it up for our closing prayer time.  These prayers have also given me a plethora of topics for my Time For Children moments.  I think it would make a great gift and teaching tool.
