I love the simplicity of a small child's prayer. There's no hesitation and worry of using the right words. They don't worry about Thees and Thous they just lay out their requests and rightly assume that God hears them and will answer. When Jesus taught His disciples the Lord's Prayer He used that same simplicity. It is a wonderful example of how we should approach the Father and an easy template to teach our children. Rick Warren and Richard Jesse Watson have taken these timeless words and added beautiful illustrations and thoughts that will encourage you and your children to not only learn this portion of Scripture but to also apply it in all situations. I like that The Lord's Prayer: Words of Hope and Happiness is presented in this new board book format. This is definitely a book that will be read over and over in our house so durability in the hands of little ones counts! I also appreciate the subtle way that Rick Warren puts the Scripture into repeatable segments and also includes a short thought on what that particular segment means. The King James Version is beautifully lyrical but often the verbiage is confusing to little ones (and sometimes adults). The illustrations are stunningly life-like and had us all mesmerized. I heartily recommend this book to all families. If you are looking for a new way to help your kids learn the Lord's Prayer this book is a great resource. I received a copy of this book to facilitate my review.

Warren's prose is the perfect compliment to go side by side, the beautiful art of Watson. This combinations brings to life, the ever popular Lords's prayer from the bible. This board book will stand up to years of use by small toddlers. The bold colors and illustrations will hold the attention of young readers even if they can not fully grasp the message of the Lords prayer. This is a book that children and even adults will enjoy. As a blogger for Booklook I received a copy of this book published by Zonderkidz for the purpose of writing this review.
