Mommy, Mommy, When You Pray
About the Book:
Celebrate the simple joys of family life! A mother shares with her children the joy and thanksgiving she offers through prayer, teaching them that they are blessings, just in being who God made them to be.
The story starts with a son asking his mother what is in her heart when she prays. She replies that she thanks God for "little hearts, and hands and faces. Whispers that tickle, and horseback races. For every curious cabinet searcher, and overflowing imagination to nurture.". There are pictures of the family sledding and kids in a holiday performance. Kids joining the parents in bed in early morning are also shown. The book concludes with "My heart says thank you. Thank you God".
Teaching kids to pray is an important part of motherhood and this book show that we should start with thanking God for the most precious part of our lives, our family. Grade: B-
