Book Review: Words To Dream On

Words to Dream On: Bedtime Bible Stories and Prayers
By Diane Stortz
Art by Diane Le Feyer

This is a sweet and beautifully illustrated 224-page book with over 50 Bible stories from both the Old and New Testament. Each selection starts by listing which Scriptures the story covers so you can read it from a Bible if you’d like. There is also one key verse before the story starts called “Words to Dream On” which gives the theme of the story as a nice take-away for bedtime devotions. After the story is finished, there is a “Bedtime Blessing” which is an encouraging thought to leave with your child before you turn out the light along with a “Sleepy-Time Prayer” to pray together. At the end of the book there is a short section of tips to help create a happy bedtime routine with your child.

What I Like
I especially like the whole feel of this book. What a beautiful, tender, and biblical treasure to share each night together as you tuck your little one into bed! I love all the features that make it perfect for using with a bedtime routine such as the “Bedtime Blessing” and “Sleepy-Time Prayer.” The art is so fresh, original, and delightful, too. I especially like how in night-time scenes (including on the cover) it looks like the stars are hanging on strings from the sky. So adorable!!!! Between the beautiful re-tellings of these Bible stories in words little ones can understand and the soft and endearing illustrations, this is sure to become a favorite for families who are intentional about sending their children off to dreamland with God’s Word tucked into their heart and the love of God wrapped like a blanket around them.

-Thanks, BookLook Bloggers for another wonderful free book in exchange for my honest review!
