The poems themselves are sometimes a little forced in order to keep a rhyme going. But the sentiments are sweet and simple enough for tiny ones to grasp.
I have a feeling we’ll be reading this one a lot in the years ahead as we grow our little bookworm!
This book turned out to be no exception and is quickly a family favorite for bedtime reading.
This charming children's book is filled with four bedtime stories that are sure to make bedtime special for your little one. The stories include:
Thank You, God!
God Loves You
Each story rhymes which makes the story more engaging and easier for children to remember. The stories all include a lesson in blessings, thankfulness, seeing blessings everywhere, and teaching God's love. They are all just the right type of stories to read to your young one before bedtime. Each story is short enough so that it isn't too long to hold your child's attention but long enough to captivate your child in the stories and illustrations.
All of the illustrations are on glossy paper and are drawn vividly, colorful, and chock full of detail that you and your child can enjoy together.
I highly recommend this book, and in our case made bedtime so fun and easy. Our children often request this book as their bedtime story and want all the stories read before bedtime. They greatly enjoy pointing out details in some of the pictures and the words are put in a way that they can easily understand.
I would say this book is perfect for ages 2-7, and enjoyable for parents as well. :)

I just love the new Little Blessings book from Tyndale, Bedtime Stories and Prayers. The sweet illustrations and lulling rhymes are just what we need to get back into reading stories at night. My youngest is coming up on her first birthday soon, and I am so excited to give this book to her as a gift. I would really like to have her begin to sleep through the night in her crib, and plan to add Bedtime Stories and Prayers to our renewed routine.
This book reminds me so much of the Precious Moments Bedtime book I had as a girl. I think it's my fond memories of my mom reading to me before bed that makes me want to do the same with my girls. Young children will love this precious book. My five year old even loves to read it, and has asked if she can be the one to give it to my youngest on her birthday. So precious!
I received Bedtime Stories and Prayers through the Tyndale Blog Network. I was not asked to write a positive review. All views and opinions expressed are purely and completely my own. I will receive no compensation other than a print copy of the book featured in this post , which is mine to keep.
Bedtime Stories and Prayers: Blessings for bedtime is written by Dandi Daley Mackall and Kathleen Long Bostrom, and is illustrated by Elena Kucharik. It's part of the Little blessings series for young children, but this bedtime book includes four short stories included in this one book. The stories included are Bedtime Blessings, Thank you God, Blessings Everywhere and God Loves You. I usually see this particular series as small board books, so I was pretty excited when I opened the package to find this large book!
I just have to say that I loved the illustrations in this book. They were absolutely adorable and the children were somewhat reminiscent of Precious Moments characters. The stories are nice and short with little writing on each page or every other page. I have a 6 year old and a 17 month old and both of them sat on my lap enjoying the stories. My 17 month old almost made it all the way through the book before she needed a break, which is saying quite a bit for such a young child. She loved the colorful pages filled with children, nature and animals. I can easily see this book becoming a bedtime favorite in our home.
I also loved the values that this book instills in their simple and short stories. Thankfulness, Creation, Prayer, Blessings, God's love and His forgiveness of our sins were just a few of the topics mentioned in this sweet little book.
I would highly recommend this book and I rate it as 5 stars. My girls also give it 5 stars. :)
I received this book free from Tyndale Book Publishers to give my honest unbiased opinion.
