Bedtime Stories And Prayers Book Review

Bedtime Stories And Prayers: blessings for bedtime written by Dandi Daley Mackall and Kathleen Long Bostrom with illustrations by Elena Kucharik (who also created the Care bears!). A special bedtime edition, having one hundred and eleven pages with four favorite Little Blessings stories and prayers, telling of God's love and helping kids learn to thank God each day. It includes:
  • Bedtime Blessings-reminding children that God made nighttime and they have nothing to be afraid of.
  • Thank You God-which teaches kids to be thankful for everything.
  • Blessings Everywhere-reminds children of their blessings
  • God Loves You-holds the powerful message that God will comfort and guide the child through the night and through their lives.

   Such a cute bedtime book to read to your little ones. I would say age three and under...my son is five and he felt a little too grown for it ;) But the illustrations are beautiful and the poetry of each story is sweet. It reminds me much like a modern day Precious Moments piece. Some pictures are filled with humor, some with emotions, and all with just downright cuteness. My favorite story was the one called Blessings Everywhere. Here's a small excerpt from it:

 "Skipping on a winding path, 
Bubbles in my bubble bath!
 Muddy puddles, muddy me! 
Blessings Everywhere!"

I like the bitty reminders in it that focus on the little things in life, the little blessings that sometimes get overlooked, but are all great parts of childhood.  Here are a few illustrations, as you can see, they are just adorable! A great children's bedtime book that is sure to bring your lil one sweet dreams :)




Bedtime Stories and Prayers, available in an 8x8 padded hardcover, can be purchased with Tyndale House Publishers for $14.99 or you can find it for purchase on Amazon. You can also read a small pdf excerpt HERE.
