100 PRAYERS GOD LOVES TO HEAR 100 PRAISE SONGS is a hardcover book, including two CDs that kids can listen to anytime. The book teaches that prayer is important for everyone, both grownup and young, and at anytime during the day, prayer isn’t just for bedtime.

Included in this colorfully illustrated book are prayers of blessing, thankfulness, praise, and comfort. The book also includes prayers from Scripture, including prayers of David, Moses, and Jesus. Inspirational prayers of Charles Wesley, Abraham Lincoln, and Martin Luther are included as well as beloved children’s prayers such as Now I Lay Me Down to Sleep.

The CDs include 100 Praise songs, such as I’ve Got Joy Down in My Heart, Come Thou Almighty King, Into My Heart, The Full Armor of God, Shout With Joy, and What A Friend We Have in Jesus among many others.

My eight year old and five year old daughters were both super excited when this book came in the mail and could hardly wait for me to review it. We put the first CD on right away so we could listen to it. We all enjoyed listening to the songs, and the colorful images of this book drew the girls right in. I like the little thoughts that are included on the pages with each prayer, sometimes telling about the person who prayed that prayer, and giving a small application for the child to remember. Under the pictures are inspirational quotes or scripture about prayer.

If you are looking for a children’s book then 100 PRAYERS GOD LOVES TO HEAR 100 PRAISE SONGS is a book/CD combo that is sure to please. This will appeal to young children from toddler hood into the early elementary grades as well as their parents/grandparents while teaching important and valuable lessons about prayers. $19.99. 207 pages, 2 CDs.
