For younger children, there is a series of sequential workbooks on tefillah, by Rabbi Mayer Bernbaum, that introduces children to birchas hashachar (the morning blessings), shema and shemoneh esrei. They are, in all likelihood, available at your local Judaica bookstore, from Rabbi Bernbaum (973-778-8536), through the Torah Umesorah Publication office (718-259-1223) or via e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org.
In the next column, we will explore other significant tefillah components and practical tips for engaging your children in meaningful davening.
