Night Night Blessings by Amy Parker, illustrated by Marijan Ramljak

Night Night Blessings is a wonderful new children's book that is perfect for bedtime.  It is narrated by a little girl who gives thanks to God for everything that she goes through in a typical day.  This book is geared toward toddlers and young children.

Night Night Blessings is beautifully illustrated.  It's warm, cozy pictures are paired perfectly with the gentle, loving words of the book.  The styling of the book with it's font and different sized sentences also adds to the general look of the book. 

My kids liked the book.  Their only complaint: "It's too short!"  They must of really liked it if they wanted more. My daughter liked the mention of "syrupy pancakes."   A breakfast request was quickly made after that.

The thing that I appreciated most about this book was how it teaches little ones to be thankful for everything that they have and do. It also shows them that God loves them and cares about them and is "watching them from above."  At the end of the day it is good to thank God, for indeed he is the giver of all good gifts.

4 out of 5 Stars
