Truly this book and the other two children’s books by Matthew Paul Turner are treasures that I am so excited to share with my grandkids. The life affirming words in each book have become prayers and praises as I converse with the children and their Maker. In "When I Pray for You", the author has captured the thoughts, hopes, cheers and fears of every parents and written them into this book, using descriptive, yet crisp language. The author and illustrator were intentional to be inclusive in the illustrations of the children. The pages are filled with diversity, creativity and personality, as you turn the pages, your child will likely see someone who looks like him or her. Finally we have books that feature the beauty and diversity of all the children in our communities.
