This book was good and bad. It had really simple language and a very concrete overview of prayer for little kids to understand. That said, there was also needless Christian doctrine sprinkled throughout. I noticed other people reviewing this felt it was a little heavy handed too. You might enjoy What Is God?.

I got this for my kids to help lay the foundation of a relationship with God. I skip some pages because I don't want to indoctrinate my kids before they can think critically about it, but I like this book still. I will wait until they are in grade school to really read it to them, but I leave it on their bookshelf so they can choose it when they want.

This was horrifying... What decent human would buy this for a child?! Talk about brainwashing them early...

FYI: I read it out of curiosity because it showed up in donations for a garage sale I'm helping set up.
