Candle Prayers for Kids post may contain affiliate links. Thanks to Kregel for a review copy.
I have fond memories of listening to Bible stories around the dinner table when I was a child, and more such memories with my own kids. Continuing in that tradition is Candle Prayers for Kids.
This book isn’t a Bible storybook, but an illustrated book of prayers for parents to read through with kids.
The book’s author and illustrator are British, and I picked this up quickly seeing references to mummy, sums, wobbly, etc. I found it rather charming. The illustrations are cute, simple, and colorful.
Each prayer has a different theme. Some are pretty “all-purpose” and could be read anytime. Others are fairly specific, and some even seem so specific that I’m not sure several would ever apply to a certain child. For instance, Sometimes I find my brother really annoying. I get fed up with him or I wanted to be the princess in our class play. All I am going to be is a tree. My friend is the princess … Please help me to be the best tree ever.
Still, I think the book could even make a nice “bedtime story” type book, even if all the prayers don’t apply.
I would use this book as a gift for a toddler’s birthday or Christmas.
Did you have a favorite Bible themed book that your parents read to you, or that you read to your children when they were little?
