Night Night Blessings
This story would make a delightful bedtime book for young children. The prose is simple and the illustrations are charming.
The young child in the story prays in thankfulness before going to bed. She thanks God for her family, her toys, her kitty and puppy, her bubble bath with snorkel mask, and her parents' putting her to bed. It is a great example of how to honestly pray with the understanding that God cares for all the details of our lives.
I will forewarn parents that they might have read and reread this book multiple times. The good thing is that the book is written in rhyme so it is easy enough to read and memorize after the tenth reading.
Thomas Nelson has provided me a free copy of this book in exchange for this review which I freely give.
