Reviews - What do our customers think?
Great book for teaching the Our Father!  Dec 12, 2009
I think this is a perfect book for teaching the Our Father to young children! The book contains the entire prayer as prayed in the Catholic Church. Each page has a line of the prayer and then a narrative to help explain the meaning of that line. The illustrations are adorable, the board book style is perfect for toddlers and the explanations are meaningful and appropriate. I love this book and the companion book "Hail Mary" (also by Sabrina Bus) and have bought copies for all the young children on my Christmas list for two years in a row!
Good introduction to prayer for toddlers!  Nov 28, 2009
"Our Father" couples The Lord's Prayer with explanations written by Sabrina Bus. Each phrase from Jesus' prayer is given one to two sentences of contemporary paraphrase or elaboration.

For example, the first page reads "Our Father" at the top and, at the bottom, reads "God, we can talk to you like a father. You think that everything we tell you is important."

The illustrations by Xavier Deneux feature bold, primary colors and multi-ethnic people. The proportions are a bit exaggerated (some heads too large; some mid-sections too large), but this does not detract from the characters' appeal and friendliness.

WHAT I LIKE: I love the bright colors. The size of this book (6 x 6") is perfect for tossing into a bag and taking to the doctor's office or wherever. I like that the text quotes The Lord's Prayer in its entirety.

WHAT I DISLIKE: No Scripture references are offered anywhere. The book doesn't even say which Bible version is used to quote the prayer. Also, I felt the explanations were too simplistic. They offered no doctrine and very little clarification. Some didn't even seem to relate to the portion of the prayer quoted. For example, the last page reads "God, when we are sad you are near to us, and you make us feel like smiling again." This is coupled with "deliver us from evil."

OVERALL RATING: Good for infants and toddlers, but Ho-Hum for preschoolers.

Tanya -- Christian Children's Book Review
Paraphrasing Great  Jul 14, 2009
The paraphrasing of the our Father prayer is a great way to help kids understand the meaning of the verses. It's right at their level.
Cute book ...  Dec 26, 2008
This version of the "Our Father" is in modern language without the "thee's and thou's". It also uses the terms "sins" in replacement of "trespasses". It is a cute book for little kids with an explanation at the bottom of each page describing the portion of prayer used. My 2 year old loves it and is certainly learning his prayers! I must admit however, that while reading him the book I "read" the prayer in the traditional language rather than what is truely written.
