    When I Pray For You is a sweet book to read to your kiddos or grandbabies as a reminder of your undying love for them More than just a book that talks about now when they're little this book even tells the kids about your unconditional love throughout their future as preteens teens and adults I loved the rhyming of the words and how the illustrations perfectly captured the feeling of the book peaceful and welcoming The words are easy to understand for littles though they may not understand the older teen references at the time It is a book that would likely commit itself to one's memory over time and if read often enough I could easily see it being remembered as the child grows up almost like a songOne aspect that I didn't care for was the mention of teens and their stereotypical attitudes in the story and that it was spoken about as if the child would be expected to act like that without the option or opportunity to avoid it Yes typical teens do have attitudes but expecting them to be difficult and telling them that they're going to be difficult even from a young age hardly seems to give them any other option to be that one of a kind teen But I believe that is simply a minority personal preferenceOverall I liked When I Pray For You and give it 4 out of 5 stars Recommended for ages 2 5I received this book from the author for the purpose of this review All comments and opinions are entirely my ownThis is a LiteratureApprovedcom Review

    My grandchildren have loved Matthew Paul Turner’s books They are fun heart felt and helpful in helping discuss different spiritual matters with your kids and grand kids Through the colorful and entertaining illustrations this book shows that prayer is not just done in church The bible says pray without ceasing This gives the child a peek into how often parents pray for their kids It may not be audible for them to hear but it is definitely on goingThe book starts out with a mom rocking a baby “From the moment I saw you I started to pray”As the book goes on and the baby gets bigger there are all different scenarios the mother prays”When you giggled out loud or made yourself proud To God I said “Thank you” and to you I said “wow”I liked the line that affirms the parent in the story as well There is a picture of children praying outside”Cause when I pray for you God knows this is true every word I whisper is a prayer for me too”I read this book to my grand kids and they were fascinated by the pictures and interested in the story My granddaughter said “read it again” This book beautifully expresses a love of a parent for a child how God loves us and maybe they will realize that parents need prayers tooThis book blessed my soul I know it will bring an understanding and love to the parentchild relationship I highly recommend this book to everyone big and smallDisclosure of Material Connection I received a complimentary copy of this book from the Publisher I was not reuired to write a positive review The opinions I have expressed are my own I am disclosing this in accordance with the Federal Trade Commission’s 16 CFR Part 255 “Guides Concerning the Use of Endorsements and Testimonials in Advertising”Nora St LaurentTBCN Where Book Fun Begins wwwbookfunorgThe Book Club Network blog wwwpsalm516blogspotcom Book Fun Magazine

    When I pray for you is a delightful book for parents to read to their children about all the times and ways we pray for them I love that it begins with “from the moment I saw you” which includes adoptive and foster parents As an adoptive mom I really appreciate books that help my daughter feel included This book is colorful and beautifully illustrated with interesting pictures with lots for little ones to enjoy and discover each time through the book My daughter is almost nine and she still enjoyed reading this with me She sat on my lap and snuggled up Listening to me read these words made her feel so loved and cherished I would highly recommend this book to every parent I was given a preview copy of the book by the publisher to review but the opinions reflect my honest feelings about the book In some ways this book is also a good reminder for parents to pray for their children at all times in all seasons for all reasons Sometimes we get so caught up in doing things on our own power we forget that God loves our children than we do and we need to trust Him for their future than our parenting

    This wonderful picture book is meant to be shared with children and the adults who love them since the message if the text is from the loved one who prays for the child It covers a multitude of circumstances and even includes modern slang like “when you’re chill” This will reassure little ones that they are cared for and loved by their caregivers and by God It also will touch the heart of the adult The delightful illustrations with sweet children by Kimberley Barnes add to the delight of the book My one complaint is that some of the rhymes do not flow well Often I had to read the page over than once to get the proper flow—so I suggest practicing first before reading the book aloud I think the author could have perfected the rhythm better As a writer myself I have often heard how important that is in rhyming text Nevertheless this endearing book should be in every home I received a copy from the publisher All opinions are my own

    Loved this beautiful children's book so much Full of bright and tasteful pictures with lots of details my toddler spent a lot of time on each page looking at each part And the poem from a parent telling their child all of the things they are praying for them will resonate with any parent that wants the best for their child I love the emphasis on the gift the child is from God and how we as parents can trust that God will help our child grow to share the story of faith in the way each of us lives our lives Such an honor to receive an Advanced Reader Copy of this book and highly recommend you add this one to your bookshelf
