FTC: I received a copy of this book from book crasher in exchange for a honest and unbiased review.
My little Sprout loves book, she will bring me book after book to read to her. Sometimes, she will just sit down and look at the pages and feel them. Her newest thing is kissing the pages of the books.
I Prayed For You is very special to me because long before Sprout was born, I prayed and prayed for a baby. Four years I prayed. Finally when I found out I was pregnant I was stunned and continue to pray for every little thing to this day.
In the beginning of this book, the mother bear is talking to her baby and telling him that she prayed for me, that she loved him and wanted him so much..
Throughout the story, we see her praying for him as he creates a huge mess and says no, he goes off to school, he falls and gets hurts and so much more. This is the perfect bedtime story. I never knew what it was to really love someone so deeply until I met my little girl, there is nothing in the world I wouldn't do for her. Just like the mother in the story, she is there for her child through everything.
The illustrations through out the book are too sweet, and show the bond that the mother and her baby have. This book was written by Jean Fischer and I give her props and she really put in a lot of heartfelt thoughts into this book. This book was illustrated by Frank Endersby. My little girl, loves this book. It is a board book material and easy for her to turn the pages.
