I will praise the LORD all my life; I will sing praise to my God as long as I live.
37 Now I, Nebuchadnezzar, praise and exalt and glorify the King of heaven, because everything he does is right and all his ways are just.
Talking Points: Do your parents ever praise you? Praise means they recognize you when you do something right or they admire something you created. Sometimes we deserve praise, but not always. Sometimes we don’t listen to our parents and sometimes we don’t pick up our toys. God is ALWAYS worthy of praise. Everything He does is always right and praiseworthy. We should praise God every day of our lives!
Questions: Can you think of some times when your parents give you praise? How does it make you feel? Do you like it? What things do you praise/thank God for?

- To make one, first cut construction paper into 6-inch squares (our book used five squares, but yours can be larger or smaller).
Fold each square in half horizontally, unfold it, fold it in half vertically, then unfold it again. Flip the square over, and fold it in half diagonally once. Poke in the corners, as shown.
- Line up the squares as shown, alternating which side is up (determine this by looking at the point in the middle of the square). Overlap the neighboring small squares within the larger squares, and join them with a glue stick.
- Fold up the book. For a finishing touch, glue a length of ribbon to the back of the book, then wrap the ribbon around the book and tie it closed.
On the inside of the book write down things your child thinks God is praiseworthy.
Prayer: Dear Lord, thank You for being praiseworthy in everything You do! Amen!
