The Prayer Monsters series by Tracey Madder is new to me, but one I'm liking. What I love about each of the three books I have read are the illustrations. If you have read many of my kids book reviews, you know illustrations is something I'm pretty particular about. I found these illustrations to be colorful, cute, and engaging to the story. I love how friendly these monsters look and how inviting the illustrations make the stories.  

I also like the concept of prayer in this series and how each book deals with something different. For example, we have one about forgiveness, one about trust, and another about integrity. I like the way Madder took prayer and integrated it into each of the stories to relate to the topic of the book.

While I like the concept of this series, it did take me a few minutes to get into the writing style. I felt like there were a lot of “so and so said this, and so and so said that.”

The text is printed on top of the illustrations and depending on the background, some text was harder to read than others. I would have liked the text to be in a faded box, so I could still see the illustrations behind, but also read the text easier.

This final story was probably my favorite because I felt for the characters. I loved the way Tora showed what we should do when someone hurts us.

Each of the books leave the reader, both young and old, with an applicable example from the characters to pray. I like how these stories gave examples of short prayers that can be said during particular situations and I think this makes the stories relatable to the reader.

I'm hoping for more books to come in this series, but until they do, I'm excited Tracey Madder is letting me give away a copy of each of the three books to one reader. Just use the Rafflecopter box below to enter.
