The book is fantastic for teaching young kids the Lords Prayer. Love the pictures with all the colors. It may hold their attention. Enjoyed how it explains what the prayer means and why we say it. We bought this book for some unchurched young kids that we tend a couple times a week. It is an eye opener to see their enthusiasm towards God. They ask lots of questions and the book help with answering them in a way they can understand.
I was very happy to receive the book The Lord's Prayer. The prayer, itself, means so much--but adding the beautiful artwork to each page--makes reading Mr. Watson's book so reflective. The book is very special to us. We are saving it for our grandchildren. Thank you so much.
I took this book with me to Armenia as a gift to a 4 year old child. Though she new very little English. After spending 45 days with her she now recites to me the Lords Prayer whenever I talk to her on Skype. I will visit her soon Christmas again but this time I will take to her the children's book on PSALM 23. We will read Psalm 23 daily and I am very excited the time we spend together teaching her the meaning of Christian walk.
What a gorgeous book full of stunning artwork to accompany the simplicity of the Lord's Prayer. The pictures of children are amazing, and kids will be captivated by their beauty. I also love the included simple commentary by Rick Warren as a child-friendly explanation of each phrase. A wonderful book.
My prayer that every child and family can use this

We are trying to teach 1st and 2nd graders to memorize Psalm 23 and the Lords Prayer. My coworker and I were dismayed at the clueless looks on children's faces trying to memorize the prayer--we asked and they replied they never have heard the prayer! And half are in Christian homes and attend church regularly! We sent a newsletter home and I spoke with the Pastor. I've order 12 more books as the "prize" for memorizing the prayer and in hopes families will use the book and share with any guests who are in their homes. Tell the good news!
The illustrations will capture the attention of children immediately! The illustrations and the accompanying verses will make it easy for the Lord's Prayer to be remembered by children, thereby laying the foundation for learning God's Word.
