A Christmas Prayer

A Christmas Prayer
by Amy Parker, Illustrated by Marijan Ramljak

This children's book is the perfect Christmas story for young children.  It is filled with capturing illustrations that will engage young children, filled with rhymes and pictures that draw young eyes and ears.  Most appropriate for ages 2-5 years, older children can enjoy reading it as well.  A padded boardbook, it is perfect for young hands, sturdy and well constructed.

On a snowy Christmas night, a young child goes from place to place in his home, praying and thanking God, ending with thanks for the best Christmas gift, Jesus.  The message is presented in a way that is interesting to young eyes and ears, while not boring to the older reader.  Illustrations are soft and clear, drawing the eye from scene to scene, including major Nativity characters.  The message of the ultimate Christmas gift - Jesus - is presented in a way young readers can understand while still sharing a spiritual message.  Highly recommended for all homes with young children, even those with infants who can grow into loving this book.
