Lucado Treasury of Bedtime Prayers By Max Lucado and Denalyn Lucado

The new Lucado Treasury of Bedtime Prayers Prayers for bedtime and every time of day! By Max Lucado and Denalyn Lucado, illustrated by Lisa Alderson is a beautiful compendium for children.  Filled with Alderson's beautifully illustrated full color art, and biblical poetry- this book is reminiscent of a poetry book for children.  Unlike many modern illustrations you will find in childrens bibles and story books, these are not careless cartoon drawings.  The artwork is beautifully created- giving dignity to the poetry and passages in the book.  The reader will find both traditional poetry as well as original poetry by Max and Denalyn.  This is the perfect prayer book, yet it is presented as a fun to read bedtime story book. There is a lot of flexibility in this compendium..  Basically you can pick up from any spot and start reading, or you can choose to read each poem from cover to cover.  This padded hardcover book would make the perfect gift for any young child.  These poems and prayers are intended to be read by an adult to a child.  The peaceful, soft artwork will draw the attention of young readers as well as parents. The best part of the book is the fact that there are contributions from a number of writers as well as some brief excepts of scripture too.  As a blogger for Booklook I received a copy of this book published by Zonderkidz for the purpose of writing this review.
