Children's Book Review: "Night Night Devotions"

Sweet Lou and I recently recieved a book to review called "Night Night Devotions", by Amy Parker, and illustrated by Virginia Allyn. It is a sweet book that has 90 devotions for bedtime. After reading through it (we haven't gotten through all 90 yet), I would definitely recommend it for your lower elementary age and younger kiddos.

Every devotional includes a Bible verse to start, and a rhyming prayer at the end. There is also a related question to talk about with your child and process a bit what you just read together. Sweet Lou really likes the rhyming prayers at the end, and is definitely engaged through the devotion which is not always the case with some children's devotions.

As a mama, I love how Biblically based every devotional is. Parker ties in the Bible, in context, with an engaging devotional that is appropriate for a little one. I think preschool and kindergarten age kids will engage with the writing, the pictures, and be able to understand without getting bored.

Overall, this is definitely one we have loved and will keep using! I even have a link to enter for a chance to win "Night Night Devotions" for free: click here.

Also below I have included the "official" book description and link to buy it on amazon:

"Bedtime is the perfect opportunity to snuggle your little ones close and remind them of God's presence and love. In this book of 100 devotions for kids ages 3–7, bestselling author Amy Parker and illustrator Virginia Allyn invite you to begin a tradition of prayer and devotions with your children to carry them through the years to come.

Each of the devotions in Night Night Devotions begins with a Bible verse and includes Night Night questions to encourage interaction with your children. If you want to use the book as a companion to Night Night Bible Stories, the devotions have corresponding titles that accompany each Bible story—with much more in between! Each devotion ends with a rhyming Night Night Prayer that emphasizes God’s love and care, such as . . .

Dear God, I love You more than

There are fishes in the sea,

But there's no way that I could love You

More than You love me!

Night night, God.

With cheerful, colorful artwork and sweet Night Night rhymes, this devotional is sure to become your family's new bedtime favorite."
