Words of Hope and Happiness
By Rick Warren
About the book:
This iconic prayer is paired with flowing illustrations by award-winning artist Richard Jesse Watson and thoughtful insights by bestselling author Rick Warren, resulting in a book that rejuvenates the familiar prayer for a younger audience. Using poetic scripture from the King James Version, The Lord’s Prayer: Words of Hope and Happiness helps familiarize children with real biblical text while also presenting contemporary illustrations and insightful words that make this beautiful prayer come alive.
I'm always so, so excited to take new books into my Sunday School class. The little ones get so excited when I pull a new book out of my bag!
I absolutely loved this book, and so did they! On one page, there is a verse from the Lord’s Prayer featured. On the next page, a child friendly description of what that verse means. It was a great way to break down The Lord's Prayer and explain it to them in a way they would understand.
The illustrations are fabulous. Richard Jesse Watson illustrated the book and let me tell you, they are beautiful. They made more relatable to kids. The little guys loved looking at the pictures and pointing out something new they saw in each one.
This book is definitely one I would recommend. It would be a great asset in teaching little ones to pray! And would be a fabulous addition to any classroom.
