Reviews - What do customers think about First Prayers (Life Favors(TM))?
Beautiful Book for Bedtime May 23, 2008
I love this book because it is one of the few Christian children's books I have seen that have real grown-up prayer in it and not paraphrased age-appropriate scripture.
While we have lots of prayer and bible books aimed at toddlers (my son is two), and we love those books too, it was starting to bother me that my son never heard REAL prayer and scripture. Sure, I can read to him from the Bible, but with no pictures he is not interested.
This book has gorgeous old-fashioned illustrations along with classic prayers in grown-up language. We read a prayer from this book every night after reading a few age-appropriate books. The prayer is nice for both of us and he really enjoys the pictures.
I would definitely buy more Tasha Tudor books.
School Censorship Apr 9, 2001
This book is significant to me mainly because I had to defend it in a case of censorship! In 1996 I was the librarian of an elementary school on Long Island, I job I had for ten years previously. My principal received a complaint about the book and in the interests of political correctness removed it from the shelf. My staff association and the local professional organization I belonged to at that time were instrumental in seeing that the book was returned. I have a different job now, but I recently bought a copy of this book just to remind me of the time I stood up to the censors. I firmly believe that censorship, whether from the left or the right, is wrong.
