Parents can do so many things for their children. We can tie their shoes so they don’t trip and fall. We can make sure they have warm clothes and full tummies. We can even help them tackle some of the mysteries of higher math.
But the most important thing we can do is teach them to pray. Childhood is the best window for learning prayer. We can teach them to talk to God about everything, anything, anytime, and all the time. We can’t promise an easy life, but we can equip them to face life. We can’t be with them always, but God can.
Written for playtime and bedtime, happy times and fearful times, and all times in between, the Lucado Treasury of Bedtime Prayers is a wonderful collection of classic
children’s prayers and new prayers by best-selling author Max Lucado and his wife, Denalyn. These prayers will help your child see that God is always there for them,
ready to listen, guide, comfort, and love.
Because you can’t stop every scrape, heal every broken heart, or banish every bully, but you can teach your child to pray.

On our shelves we have Max Lucado board books, a treasury, The Story for Little Ones, The Story for Children, and The Christmas Story for Children so I was delighted when I saw a gift-worthy treasury of prayers. Teaching our children poetry, and teaching them to pray is so valuable and a special part of our lives. This treasury is a beautiful tool to help do so. The Lucado Treasury of Bedtime Prayers presents classic rhyming prayers and Lucado originals in a gorgeous presentation for any family to use. An excellent gift idea! Anyone with a young child will benefit so well from this book and I couldn't recommend it more highly. Review Copy.
'Lucado Treasury of Bedtime Prayers' is a beautiful book that children of all ages will enjoy. It's full of prayers for all kinds of situations and circumstances - from bedtime to playtime, happy or sad, or just normal days. Each prayer has a definitive rhyme scheme, so it makes them easier for kids to memorize and repeat back later. The book is also full of beautiful illustrations on each page. They're full of color and will definitely catch the attention of all children - especially the smaller ones who can't read yet. In my opinion, this book can be used for children of all ages. When they're really small, they will enjoy looking at the gorgeous pictures while you read the prayers aloud to them. Over time, as they begin to learn how to read on their own, this would be a great resource on practicing reading skills - with the rhyme scheme of the prayers, it will be easier for the child to use the new abilities they are learning as well as finding a good learning system that's unique to them. With older children, they will be able to practice by reading the book to others. With such wonderful prayers - which could also be described as poems - and the incredibly beautiful artwork, this book is sure to be a huge hit with kids and adults alike. It would also make a great gift for a baby shower or a child's birthday. Very highly recommended!! Disclosure: I received a copy of the book from the publisher through the Book Look Bloggers Program in exchange for an honest review.
The new Lucado Treasury of Bedtime Prayers Prayers for bedtime and every time of day! By Max Lucado and Denalyn Lucado, illustrated by Lisa Alderson is a beautiful compendium for children. Filled with Alderson's beautifully illustrated full color art, and biblical poetry- this book is reminiscent of a poetry book for children. Unlike many modern illustrations you will find in childrens bibles and story books, these are not careless cartoon drawings. The artwork is beautifully created- giving dignity to the poetry and passages in the book. The reader will find both traditional poetry as well as original poetry by Max and Denalyn. This is the perfect prayer book, yet it is presented as a fun to read bedtime story book. There is a lot of flexibility in this compendium.. Basically you can pick up from any spot and start reading, or you can choose to read each poem from cover to cover. This padded hardcover book would make the perfect gift for any young child. These poems and prayers are intended to be read by an adult to a child. The peaceful, soft artwork will draw the attention of young readers as well as parents. The best part of the book is the fact that there are contributions from a number of writers as well as some brief excepts of scripture too. As a blogger for Booklook I received a copy of this book published by Zonderkidz for the purpose of writing this review.
