A quick reminder...starting next week, I'll be celebrating the 1 year Anniversary of *She Sparkles*. I have lots of fun giveaways planned (all my favorite things!) ~ so mark your calendar for Monday, April 12th, and be sure to stop back for a full week of fun and celebration! :)
Have you read any new good kids' books lately?? :)
One of the many blessings of *She Sparkles* is the opportunity to read and review new books! And my favorite part is sharing the blessing with you, my dear bloggy friend, with book giveways!!
I was thrilled when I was recently asked to participate in a Blog Tour featuring a kids' book on prayer! This Little Prayer of Mine was written by Anthony DeStefano and illustrated by Mark Elliott.
Here's a brief description from the back of the book...
I know you're up in heaven, God,
and can hear my voice from there.
I'm just a little child.
Will you answer my short prayer?
So begins this delightful book that affirms God's readiness to answer our prayers, no matter what our age.
With engaging rhymes and beautiful illustrations, This Little Prayer of Mine assures children that God is always near--watching, listening, caring, and eager to respond to their requests. They'll also learn that prayer isn't just about asking for things, but about sharing their feelings of sadness and uncertainty as well as of thanksgiving and joy.
Most importantly, This Little Prayer of Mine reminds children—and those who love them—that they can trust God to tenderly care for them, no matter what the future holds.
I loved this book! My little girl Sarah enjoys me reading it to her over and over again. The book's message is a wonderful reminder of our Source of true peace and joy, and God's love and care for every detail of our lives. I would highly recommend it! (It would also make a great book to give as a gift!!)
Obviously I'm excited to be able to send a copy of this book to a *She Sparkles* reader. :)
