Book Review, “Tell Me About Prayer,” Stephen Elkins author

Tell Me About Prayer coverTell Me About Prayer is an “Easy to Read, Easy to Understand” children’s book created by Stephen Elkins. It is illustrated by Ruth Zeglin and Simon Taylor-Kielty. It is designed to use a “train locomotive theme as a method for teaching kids core Christian beliefs and principles.” It is based on Proverbs 22:6, which says, “Train up a child in the way he should go; and when he is old, he will not depart from it.”

This interactive book comes with a CD and stickers to enhance its message long after the story is finished. It includes Discovery Land, Story Junction, Bridge of Song, Learning Station, Decision Depot, and Prayer Place. Its adorable illustrations add to its charm. Also, it is part of a series that includes books on topics such as baptism, church, faith, grace, and salvation.

I was impressed with this book. I especially liked the interactive methods used to teach. The CD and stickers add to its appeal to children. I would recommend this book to anyone looking for children’s books that truly teach Biblical concepts.


I received this book free from the publisher and was not required to write a positive review.
