How Did Bible Heroes Pray? by Mona Hodgson is a fun and easy-to-read book that shows children how God hears their prayers anywhere and any time. It can assist parents and teachers in emphasizing how Bible heroes were every day people and that children can have the same kind of relationship with God as they did. The book demonstrates how today¿s children can pray just as great men and women of God have in the past, with a whole range of individual needs and emotions. It reinforces the parents¿ example of daily prayer. Hallie Gillett¿s delightful illustrations show children of all colors in many places, adding to the reader¿s satisfaction. The message is clear throughout and the catchy poem at the end strengthens the book as a teaching tool. There are also Bible verse references on each page for deeper study in the Scriptures. Well done!
I love this book. It's perfect for reading in children's church services, Sunday school classes, private Christian school 'reading times,' etc. My friend, who is a guest reader at her children's school, said this is the perfect book to read to the first grade class, and I agree. It references scripture to verify the given examples of different ways to pray that are all pleasing to God. I love how it encourages prayer in every situation. The book also has delightful illustrations that will capture a child's eye. The artist did a wonderful job. I also love the way the story is laid out and how the poem at the end is catchy and sticks with you. I highly recommend this book for a variety of purposes in addition to simply owning it just because your child will want you to read it to them every day for at least a year. :) Michelle Therese
