Children’s Daily Prayers: For Catholic Kids by Eugenio Barroso
This book of daily prayers will aid in the first few years of a Catholic child’s life. It contains 31 daily prayers in a children-friendly format, with easy language, beautiful images, and large print. Every day also features either a reflection, tip or activity to enrich the prayer session.
Additionally, this book includes the basic prayers (Sign of the Cross, Our Father, Hail Mary, a Spiritual Communion and the Angelus) so children can work on memorizing them.
Most of the prayers were composed by the author, based on the Bible, citing chapter and verse so you can enrich the prayer further if you wish by reading the Biblical passage as well.
The daily prayers come in a children-friendly language so they can pray along when they begin to speak, and large print helps them when they begin to read.
