and this book is the basic prayer for most!

Synopsis:

The Lord’s Prayer is a foundational prayer that believers keep with them throughout their lives. This charming board book features the iconic text of The Lord’s Prayer with adorable illustrations that help make the words more accessible to young children. This board book has a carry-me handle and padded cover.

Review:

This book is aimed at kids ages 0-3, but can easily work for up to 5, for those learning the prayer for the first time! It is the 'Protestant' version, with text straight from the bible (Roman Catholics can just omit the last last 2 lines/4 pages). It's adorable illustrations help to set the words in kid's minds very easily. they are bright and eye catching, as you can see


The size is perfect for carrying to church on Sunday, or to Sunday school. It has a great plastic handle, so it can be carried easily by itself as well. The padded cover helps to ensure its ages will stay safe as well. And with the heavier pages, the book will stand up to much use as well! We love it, and it would be a lovely baptism or christening gift as well as a baby shower one!
