Why Do We Say Good Night? - Children's Book Review

Book Overview:

Going to bed and turning out the light can be a hard time for many children. Award-winning author Champ Thornton wrote this beautifully designed and illustrated book to help parents comfort their children with three truths about God. As a mother and her little daughter talk, they remember together that God made the night, he sees in the dark, and he watches over them just like a shepherd protects his sheep. Children and parents will want to start a new nighttime tradition of reading together about why we can say that the night is good.

In this important, engaging children's book, parents can bring comfort and encouragement to their children, reminding them Jesus is near.

My Review:

Young children thrive on routine and rituals.  Bedtime can be a precious time of connection for you and your kids. Enjoy those snuggly moments together as you read this bedtime book while exploring all the goodness of God even when it's dark.

This book is delightful way to open children's eyes to the many ways that God shows His love and watches over us.  It's also a good way to show children that there's no reason to be afraid of the dark.  A short narrative told in rhythmic form, Why Do We Say Good Night? talks about the goodness of God and how we are well-protected at all times.  The illustrations of "monsters" show that our imagination can run wild at night but that there's no reason to be scared.  I love the message this story conveys.

I received book for review from New Growth Press.  The opinions within this post are of my own and I was not influenced in any way.  Please do your own research before purchasing products or using services.  Your opinions and results may differ.
