Review: A Christmas Prayer by Amy Parker

A Christmas Prayer by Amy Parker is a padded hard-cover book with board book pages making it easy for small hands to hold and turn pages.  The prayer, written in rhyme, thanks God for all the people, animals, and places in the Christmas story - Gabriel, Mary, Joseph, the donkey, the manger, the shepherds, the star, and of course, Jesus.   With two young boys (ages 2 & 4), this story is just perfect for their age group and possibly up through age 6!  A Christmas Prayer is a great reminder of the true meaning of Christmas and helps reemphasize that Christmas is not only about the gifts under the tree but about the true Gift of Christmas and the reason we are celebrating.

The illustrations were very subtle of a small child gathering household objects, like dolls and a rocking horse, to re-create the characters in the nativity.  I would have liked brighter colors but it makes this a perfect nighttime story that will make every parent and child want to snuggle up by the tree and offer a prayer of thanks to God for His many Christmas blessings!  As the child offers thanks and prayers on Christmas Eve, it will offer you, as a parent, the opportunity to expand on the story of Christmas with your own children so this is a perfect book without being overly religious.   A Christmas Prayer is a simple reminder of the true meaning of Christmas from a child's perspective.
