Thank You, God, for Blessing Me, by Max Lucado
I chose this book because my 7 year old loves Hermie the Wormie. I just couldn't resist this book for him. He loves me to read it over and over to him. I have him read to me then I to him. I have been working on prayer with him and how meaningful praying is. I like how Hermie thanked God for blessing him with leaves to sleep on, food to eat. He then touched on being the best he can and being kind and obeying. I have been working on the importance of these. I have also spoken to my little one about the importance of being respectful of others. I feel this book really opens up prayer for little ones. I feel the book shows the children that God really cares about the little things ~ that we really appreciate all that he's designed and made for us.
My son liked the pictures in the book; one that he commented on was the one where they were all helping one another get the food, holding each other up. He commented also that we can pray anytime and God will listen. He said he really liked that he prayed for his friends, family and food.
I would recommend this to families with children that are learning about praying and the various things that we can pray about or for. Thank you BookSneeze for letting me review this book.
