Giveaway -- Children's book about prayer

Recently I received a package in the mail with a children's picture book on prayer. This book is not for me to keep, it is just for one of you! The author contacted me and graciously offered a book to giveaway to one of my readers.

To see more images or to order this book just released on February 16, check out Anthony DeStefano's website.


This is a beautiful book that helps teach children about prayer by walking them through a child's prayer. Anthony DeStefano along with illustrator Mark Elliott have created a pictorial and linguistic image of praying to God with humility, thankfulness, and requests.


There are an abundance of good picture books to read with your kids, but not enough of them contain a spiritual message that we would like to pass along to them. This book is a great addition to your home bookshelves.


Of course, it also caught my eye and my kids noticed that the picture hanging on the wall is Raphael's Sistene Madonna that we were just studying in history. Nice when learning crosses real life . . .


Anyway, if you would like to enter this giveaway, simply leave a comment on this post. And you can earn an extra entry by sharing about this giveaway with some of your friends. Either blog, tweet, post, or email about this giveaway somewhere, and come back and leave a second comment saying you did so and you will receive a second entry.


You want another entry? Well, because I appreciate all my followers and subscribers so much, if you are a follower or a subscriber to this site leave another comment for yet another entry. New followers and subscribers are welcome to take advantage of this extra entry as well.


That's a total of three possible entries (one just for telling me you are reading this, one for telling others about it, and one for subscribing or following).

What a fabulous giveaway. Prayer is such important part of the Christian faith and it needs to be taught at a young age.
Thanks for the chance!
