Emma Introduces Two of Her Special Friends to New Preschool Friends
Four year old Emma enters into a dialog with her preschool friends in this wonderful board book, written by Catherine DeVries and illustrated by Ryan Jackson. Emma’s innocence and openness allows her to freely talk about prayer, her friend Jesus with a sense of childhood awe and genuine love.
“Let’s Learn About the Lord’s Prayer” will be enjoyed by toddlers through early readers and their parents and grandparents as they delight in the bonding experience of learning about Emma’s friend Jesus through words, pictures, and music. Ryan’s illustrations enhance Catherine’s story line and become unexpected openers for those impromptu teaching moments.
Every church school preschool class should add “Let’s Learn About the Lord’s Prayer” to bookshelves and on their suggested list of books for family reading at home.
Catherine DeVries is an award winning author, an associate editor of children’s resources at David C. Cook, and has written over 20 books.
