The Lion Book of First Prayers by Su Box


The Lion Book of First Prayers by Su Box

For adults wondering how best to introduce the idea of prayer to young children this is a 'godsend'. This collection of first prayers for young children is a book to use and to treasure. The prayers are simple, yet with meaning for the very young. A number of prayers are by children themselves and include first thoughts and questions about God. There are also several simple retellings of Bible verses and a simple paraphrase of the Lord's Prayer. This prayer book is now available in its smallest edition yet, appealing in presentation and price point to make it ideal for parents, grandparents, godparents or churches who want to give a small but meaningful gift or award to a child. The Lion First Bible is also available in a matching format.
