Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
A pair of board books illuminate two of the best-known prayers from the Christian and Roman Catholic traditions via joyful and welcoming mixed-media illustrations and some encouraging annotations: Our Father and Hail Mary by Sabrina Bus, illus. by Xavier Deneux. Exemplary of the format, the words "Our Father" are presented in bold, paired with (in smaller type) such hopeful lines as "God, we can talk to you like a father./ You think that everything we tell you is important."

Our Father 3.5 out of 5 based on 0 ratings. 2 reviews.

I think this is a perfect book for teaching the Our Father to young children! The book contains the entire prayer as prayed in the Catholic Church. Each page has a line of the prayer and then a narrative to help explain the meaning of that line. The illustrations are adorable, the board book style is perfect for toddlers and the explanations are meaningful and appropriate. I love this book and the companion book "Hail Mary" (also by Sabrina Bus) and have bought copies for all the young children on my Christmas list for two years in a row!

I was looking for a book to help teach the Lord's prayer. This book did not contain the whole Lord's prayer. It took key parts of the prayer and added annotations. Not enough of the prayer to make it meaningful. My two, two-and-a-half year old grandchildren have listened to longer board books with no attention problems. I did like the board book format. It would withstand rough handling.
