Kids can Pray

When I first got this book, I was surprised. I did not expect a devotional book that would teach kids to read. Instead, I expected a picture book with cute illustrations.
I was half right. The illustrations are soft and cute. It is very pleasing to the eye and I would be glad to keep it for my future children to use. I think it's a wonderful book since I skimmed a few pages. It feels right in my hand and the pages are glossy. 

With this 52-week devotional by Holly Hawkins Shivers, your children will learn the importance of prayer, how to pray, and how to build a lifelong relationship with God.

Because no matter who you are or what profession you're in, success is contingent less on what you can do for yourself, but on what other people are willing to do for you.  Here, through 53 bite-sized, easy-to-execute, and often counter intuitive tips, you’ll learn to master the 11 People Skills that will get you more of what you want at work, at home, and in life.

What does it take to win success and influence? Some people think that in today’s hyper-competitive world, it’s the tough, take-no-prisoners type who comes out on top. But in reality, argues New York Times bestselling author Dave Kerpen, it’s actually those with the best people skills who win the day. Those who build the right relationships. Those who truly understand and connect with their colleagues, their customers, their partners.  Those who can teach, lead, and inspire.
