Review

ECPA bestseller

A mother with wide, emerald eyes cradles her blanketed infant: “from the moment I saw you,/ I started to pray./ Big prayers and small ones/ I have sent God’s way.” As the child grows from a baby to a girl, the mother is encouraging yet watchful: “I pray you grow strong, have passion and fight./ And stand up for what’s good with all of your might.” Barnes’s ebullient artwork shows the child at a pool party, reading to her peers in a book nook, and playing in a band. A final spread shows that the child has not yet grown up; instead, the mother holds her baby on a hilltop under a gentle sky, projecting a life to come. New moms will welcome the wistful tone and scenes of a child’s joyful discoveries. Ages 3–7. (Feb.)
-Publishers Weekly

In this cheerful, reflective rhyming children’s picture book, author Matthew Paul Turner shares a parent’s prayer for a child to grow up in the love and light of God: “I pray you love well. That the light in you swells. That the story God writes is the one that you tell.” The parent prays for the child’s joys, achievements, fears, and dreams, reminding the child, “When I pray for you, I imagine God’s view And pray all that God sees comes alive inside you.” Turner’s hopeful, encouraging poetry is complemented by illustrator Kimberley Barnes’s pictures of vivacious, ethnically diverse characters and bright, buoyant settings of home, playground, nature, and more. When I Pray for You would make an excellent gift to parents of newborns and to children at the time of their baptism. (WaterBrook, 2019)

3.0 out of 5 stars Beware before you buy!!
By Amazon Customer on January 30, 2020
I wanted to love this book, but was completely turned off that this book included children being scared by ghost stories. I didn’t expect this in a Christian book. My children were scared and it was a deal breaker for me because we don’t watch or read anything with ghost. Just wanted to warn parents to keep this mind if you are considering this book.
