Peter's Perfect Prayer Place by Stephen Kendrick and Alex Kendrick

In this delightful book for children, Peter tries to find his own special place for prayer. He is inspired by his mom who is in her very own prayer room. He looks in the kitchen, thinking he may have found a spot where he can take a snack and drink and talk to God. But clanging pans are noisy and maybe the kitchen will smell like broccoli!

With simple rhyming verse we follow Peter to his tent but it is dark. He finds his tire swing is too distracting with noise and animals running around. His tree house looks good as he would be closer to God, but it is so high. He searches more places and wonders where God will hear him.

His dad has the answer. God will hear Peter anywhere and any time.

There are extra features in this book, including a Parent Connection. A parent can use the suggestions on that page to lead their little one in a directed discussion about prayer. There is also a collection of stickers so kids can identify when they prayed and when God answered. A large Prayer Poster provides ample space to write prayers and attach the stickers appropriately.

This book is a great one to help children understand prayer and begin the habit of writing down their prayers. This book was inspired by the recently released War Room movie.

My rating: 5 stars.
