Bedtime Prayers That End with a Hug! by Stephen Elkins is a beautifully illustrated bedtime devotional for kids ages 3 – 5.
With gentle, calming text and warm, soothing colors, this moving devotional is the perfect way to settle your youngster down at bedtime. Each theme includes a Bible verse, a “snuggle time” application, a “bedtime Bible thought,” and a “my hug-a-bye-prayer,” and ends with “hug! time” between the child and the reader.
It can be challenging to write devotionals for young children. While I would sit down with our girls each night to read from their children’s Bible, I would have loved a book of this nature that shows them how to thank the Lord, think of others, teaches them about self-control and giving, and so many other things that will help them in their Christian journeys.
A padded hardcover, Bedtime Prayers That End with a Hug! features a presentation page so you can give this as a gift, and has a place at the end for the child to tape or glue a picture of their family to the page so they can remember to pray for them each day. The final page includes special Bible verses to remember.
I received a copy of this book from the publisher. This review contains my honest opinions, which I have not been compensated for in any way.
