100 Prayers God Loves to Hear, 100 Praise Songs

100 Prayers God Loves to Hear, 100 Praise Songs by Stephen Elkins is a book great for children and parents to share valuable teaching moments about God.  I am always looking for Christian books to read to our 11-month old, and this one looked like it was worth checking out.  Each of the 100 prayers is actually a mini-lesson in prayer with example prayers, Bible verses, explanations, and quotes from famous individuals.  I found that I was teaching my son about prayer AND gaining valuable insight myself.  The book itself is full of bright, adorable illustrations which easily capture the attention of even the youngest explorers.
There are 2 CDs with the book which are packed with 100 songs.  I like some of the songs and did not care for others.  So we probably won't end up ever playing the CDs, but the book is still great without the CDs.  One reservation about the book is that some of the quotes are taken from various individuals with whom we have some issues with - but we just consider those teaching moments for our son when he is older.  We don't expect to agree 100% with everything that is presented even if it is a Christian book.  I received a free copy of this book from Thomas Nelson in exchange for a fair and honest review.  4 out of 5 stars.
