100 Prayers God Loves to Hear

100 Prayers God Loves to Hear/ 100 Praise Songs, created by Stephen Elkins and illustrated by Tim O’Connor is a really cute children’s book. I got it for my daughter and was hoping to save it for her 3rd birthday, but she saw me open it, and fell in love with it. She insisted that she wants it now, not later. Before she went down for her afternoon nap, she reiterated “Mom, DON’T put it away! I want to look at it when I wake up.”

There are 100 prayers, and 2 CD’s with songs to go with each prayer. Each prayer also comes with a short explanation, and a “My little prayer reminder” verse or saying. The illustrations are really cute, and hold the interest and capture the imagination of a 3-year-old. It is also very easy for a young child to follow along in the book while listening to the CD.

The only thing I do not like is that for me, the mom, after listening to about 15-20 songs, I am ready for peace and quiet. Some of the songs, sung by children, are really good, but some have a heavy beat, and end up sounding more like noise than music. That, however, doesn’t seem to bother my daughter, who insists that I do not turn it off.

Overall I would highly recommend this book for preschool age children.
