The Pray Me a Story series uses popular children’s books as a springboard for entering into imaginative prayer. Pray Me a Story is designed for use by catechists, religion teachers, parents, grandparents—anyone who prays with children of any age.
This kit includes the hardcover book Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day and an 8-page booklet to guide the adult with step-by-step instructions on how to share and discuss the story. After hearing the story, the child is gently guided into the scene to meet Jesus and prayerfully speak to him as one friend speaks to another.
Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day is a story about a boy named Alexander who one day wakes up to find gum in his hair. That’s just the beginning of a very bad day in which everything goes wrong for him. As children listen to the story, they are asked to think about what it would be like to be in his place and how it might feel to be one of his friends or family members.
