Book Review: A Wish and A Prayer
A Wish and A Prayer
Author: Beth Bence Reinke
Publisher: 4RV Publishing 2010
Illustrated by: Ginger Nielson
A Wish and A Prayer is a charming picture book for readers up to age 8 with an endearing boy named Jason who has lost his parakeet.
Jason and his friends wish on a star, on birthday candles, and even make a wish at the same time everyday for the return of the pet but soon discover that wishes are not the same thing as asking God in prayer.
The story is wonderfully written and clearly engages the reader in real life examples of the differences between wishing and praying. The book offers parents a good way to continue the discussion with their child on prayer.
The book is non-denominational and does not favor one religion over another making this a great book for children of all religions. This allows the parent to expand on the subject of prayer and to enhance individual family values.
I loved the concept of this book. The author did a great job in relating the story to a real life conflict that most children can understand. The illustrations enhance the story and keep the reader engaged. This is a great bedtime story and is wonderful addition to your child's book collection.
