A beautifully watercolor illustration of The Lord's Prayer. The Lord’s Prayer: Words of Hope and Happiness written by author and famed pastor Rick Warren is a wonderfully illustrated commentary of The Lord's Prayer. Warren, known for his bestselling book - The Purpose Driven Life - does a wonderful job presenting detailed reflections on the passages of The Lord's Prayer.

The illustrations burst with bold text and a multi-cultural faces amidst a variety of watercolor backgrounds. A beautifully written reflection that expounds on the familiar prayer in a hardbound book. (Posted on 1/16/2017)

The Lord's Prayer is something Christians learn as little ones and spend their lives reciting, but how many of us were really taught what it meant in a way we could understand as kids? Rick Warren's book does just that in such a practical yet insightful way that kids will feel confident in their understanding.

It is a board book so even the smallest of hands can handle this book easily and enjoy the message written just for them.
I love the way that the book is written. It recites the Lords prayer line by line. Each line is then explained in terms kids can understand so it really brings it down to their level. There is also a message of thanks on each page relating to that particular passage.

My kids really related to and understood this book and I think they felt relieved to have The Lord's Prayer simplified for them. It's no longer something they feel is over their level of understanding.

The illustrations are beautifully done and are simple so their message is clear without getting lost in complex details. This book would make a wonderful gift for kids this year, giving them the gift of understanding! (Posted on 11/22/2016)

The Lord's Prayer is a beautiful picture book for young children. I'd say it would be good for ages three through eight. Divided into natural segments per page spread, Rick Warren shares a brief and personable reflection of what Jesus' words mean. I like that he added a sentence prayer with each one, too. Mr. Warren is known for encouraging and uplifting people. He does this for his young audience, too. Mr. Watson's illustrations are colorful, lively, thoughtful, and well done. This would be a great teaching tool to introduce children to the Lord's prayer either individually or in a class. And what a comfort and joy for a child to hear how much Jesus loves him or her through this beautiful prayer. I received this book for free from Zonderkidz. (Posted on 11/2/2016)
