"The Circle Maker for Kids" Review


Synopsis:
The Circle Maker for Kids, written by New York Times bestselling author Mark Batterson and illustrated by Antonio Caparo, reveals the true legend of Honi the circle maker, a man whose bold prayer for rain saved a generation.
Book Description:
“One prayer can change everything.”
A terrible drought had hit the land. Gardens died, rivers ran dry; the Israelites had one last hope: Honi the Rainmaker. So they called upon him to pray, and Honi did something strange … something bold.
Would God send the rains and save the people?
Basing this story on his adult bestseller The Circle Maker, Mark Batterson shares the ancient Jewish legend of Honi the Rainmaker with children to teach them about the power of prayer.
My Review:
One aspect I want to teach my children and the children in my church is the power of their prayers.  This book is a great introduction to the power of prayer. 
I like how the story starts out by the towns people only trusting the prayers of this one person but by the end of the story people realized their prayers will be heard and answered too. 
The message is fantastic and the artwork is amazing.  I love the bright and bold colors from the sun and rain on each page.  
Thanks Zondervan and author Mark Batterson and illustrator Antonio Javier Caparo for creating a spectacular book with a meaningful message for our kids. The new challenge for parents is to start to model a good prayer life.   
I will leave you wondering why circles are a part of the title and story.  This story will be available August 6th, 2013 and retails for $15.99 for hard cover.
