Another cute little book I had the pleasure of reviewing is This Little Prayer of Mine by Anthony DeStefano and illustrated by Mark Elliott.  The pictures are absolutely beautiful.  It is a sweet little book, great for bedtime.  I think my boys will enjoy flipping through and looking at the pictures as much as they will enjoy listening to it.  It pictures a little brother and sister as they pray together before bed.  It deals with handling fears, hopes, disappointments and sin.  Very innocent and sweet.  Would be a great baby gift for a new little one.  I look forward to sharing this with my little guys.

Below you will find a summary of the book as well as the author and illustrator.

And don’t forget you can purchase the book from the Random House website. http://www.randomhouse.com/catalog/display.pperl?isbn=9780307458049&ref=externallink_wbp_thislittleprayerofmine_sec_0223_01
