Train ’Em Up is an interactive, fun-filled, and affordable series that uses a train locomotive theme for teaching kids core Christian beliefs and principles. In Tell Me about Prayer, a friendly train conductor, Mr. Steve, teaches kids what prayer is all about, how we should talk to God, and why our conversations are so important to Him. Through bold graphics and interactive songs and stories, Train ’Em Up makes it easy for parents and teachers to explain biblical concepts like prayer in a way that helps with attention, memorization, and recall while building a solid faith foundation. Each book in the series includes a CD with sing-along songs and narrated stories with sound effects, plus a colorful sticker sheet!
This is the only book of the series I've read so far, but I'm definitely interested in reading the rest of the books in the series with my two small children now. At just $4.99, these softcover books are an excellent value. The length of this book is great length and it also include stickers and a CD of childrens Bible songs that go with the theme.
I got this book for my 3 & 4 year olds and tjhey loved it. They both enjoyed decorating the pages with the included sticker sheet and they were both super excited about the CD full of songs. This CD is a full length cd with 14 songs which include: Get on Board, Little Children; The Lord's Prayer; Train Up a Child; Father, We Thank Thee; Whisper a Prayer; Standing in the Need of Prayer; Ask, Seek, and Knock; O Give Thanks; Come to Me; Pray in the Spirit; We Should Pray; Never Give Up; If My People Pray; and Ask Anything.
My girls thoroughly enjoyed me reading this book to them at bedtime and looking at the beautiful pictures. They also had my ten year old read this book to them.
This book perfectly explains the concept and purpose of prayer, as well as how to pray, in terms any child can understand and process. There are Bible verses included within the book.
The end of the book has questions to ask your child to see if they remember and understand the concepts and there is a prayer that you can pray with your child(ren) at the end.

I highly recommend this book to any Christian parent looking to share basic truths of the faith with their young children. This book would best suit children ages 3-6.
I received this book from the publisher & through the Tyndale Blog network in exchange for my honest review. All opinions expressed here are 100% my own.
