Half Awake and PRAYING They Go To Sleep!

God Bless You & Good Night
By Hannah C. Hall, Illustrated by Steve Whitlow

Help Your Little One Gently Fall Asleep

Bedtime doesn’t have to be a struggle. Join the animal families as they enjoy each moment of their bedtime routines with peace and good humor. God Bless You and Good Night provides a special moment to snuggle up with your little one and discover God’s wonderful and comforting blessings.

This beloved bedtime classic has touched more than 300,000 families and will be a favorite choice at bedtime or a perfect gift for any occasion.

More easy rhymes for 2am readings! Part of the God Bless series, I’d previously read and reviewed God Bless My Family. I love this series! Now here’s one that any parent or guardian could benefit from. A nighttime book of animals preparing for bed and saying goodnight. Sleepy giraffes, snuggly (yet still hungry) polar bears, and more, these cute animal families prepare for bed from bath time to snack time, to PJs and story time. The illustrations are adorable. Colorful, yet soft and soothing, any kid would love these cute little animals as they snuggle up and prepare to go to sleep. The rhymes and rhythm of the page make it easy to read, even when half awake and praying silently that they’ll just fall asleep! For my kids, I’ve found that routine was extremely helpful (and important) when it was time for bed. They knew to expect one last small snack, then off to take a bath (or shower), dress in PJs, brush their teeth and finally a story before going to sleep. Sometimes it would be a devotional from Jesus is Calling kids devotional series. Then ending the night with a prayer, one last kiss and an “I love you”. Not every night is perfect, and sometimes its full of tears and pouts when bedtime approaches. Perhaps this book will soothe that savage beast. Knowing that after their preparations before finally crawling into bed will be met with a special story treat, might get them to move faster…well, move, at least. Hannah Hall has a few others in the series that I haven’t read yet, but I imagine the quality is right up there with this one. I highly recommended this book for any toddler or early reader. I received a complimentary copy in exchange for my honest opinion.
