Bedtime SnugglesBedtime Snuggles

by Patricia Reeder Eubank

A sweet and cozy book that’s perfect for bedtime reading
As the sun slowly sinks in the nighttime sky, baby farm animals of all shapes and sizes snuggle up with their mamas for a good night’s sleep. Little ones will love the cozy animals and the sweet conclusion—a mother rocking her child to sleep. Patti Eubank’s expressive rhyming text is paired with her finely detailed illustrations to create a board book that is perfect for bedtime reading. It doesn’t get any sweeter than this! Ages 2 to 5.

About the Author

Patricia’s love of animals shines through on nearly every page of each book she has illustrated. She lives in the Santa Ynez Valley of California with her family and their many animals.

MY THOUGHTS ON THIS BOOK

I love board books for little ones, and this is such a cute one. I really enjoyed reading this to my niece so I could review it. This cute little story is about animal found around the house and farm, as well as wild animals found in the woods and forest around your home. The adorable pages are thick board and the beautiful front cover is padded. I love the way each picture of the animals are so beautifully placed in an environment that was natural to them. The colors are so pastel and pretty. And I especially love the last page where the mother is holding her child in the child’s room, with pets and stuffed animals laying around the room.

I love this storybook for little ones. It can be read to your child, or it can also be read by a child that is a little older and can read. This is such a cute and sweet story that your little one will have you reading it to them over and over.

The Donkey And The King ….A Story of Redemption By: Lorilyn Robert Illustrated by: Linda S. DiFranco

The Donkey And The King
A Story of Redemption
By: Lorilyn Robert Illustrated by: Linda S. DiFranco

the donkey and the kingIn The Donkey and the King, Lorilyn Roberts teaches Jesus’ love and forgiveness to children through a cast of small animals. Baruch thought the world was better on the other side of the way he was living, so he decided to take off and see what the future held for him. He thought he would be free and no one could tell him what to do. He soon finds out that life is not what it’s cracked up to be in the world. He misses his friends and the safety of his home.

On his journey he meets a sheep that was sent by the King to find Baruch, which really scares Baruch because he couldn’t figure out why the King, who didn’t even know him, would send the sheep to find him. This couldn’t be good!

This book is absolutely precious! I love the beautiful story of Baruch the donkey and how he found forgiveness in his life. Of course my almost 3 year old niece has a donkey named Jake, so she wouldn’t hear of this one’s name being Baruch, it was Jake for her! (sorry Lorilyn, I couldn’t convince her J).  She adores this book and carries it around with her a lot. She reads it herself now, looking at the pictures and telling her own story. The story of Baruch is beautiful and has a wonderful message, the colors are captivating and will capture the interest of children. And the sweet adorable animals on the front of the book will have your child begging for this adorable book.

I highly recommend this book for your child’s library. You just can’t go wrong having a strong Bible based book teaching children the truth of the love and forgiveness of Jesus, and why we really celebrate Christmas. And it also teaches the valuable lesson of being content, that things are not always better with someone else or in another situation. I can’t say enough about the illustrations in the book either! The animals are so cute and adorable and the colors are beautifully blended together. You just gotta see this book to believe it!

I want to thank the author Lorilyn Roberts for providing a copy of this book for me to read and review. I was not expected or required to give a positive review. The opinions in this review are mine only.

The Berenstain Bears Storybook Bible for Little Ones 

By Jan and Mike Berenstain

The B Bears Bible

Book Description

The Berenstain Bears Storybook Bible for Toddlers is perfect for young children. Now toddlers have a padded board book edition designed just for them, with simple text, bright art, and a padded cover. This cute and durable edition provides an overview of the Bible with eight stories from the Old and New Testaments that follow the Bear family as they explore Scripture. The Berenstain Bears Storybook Bible for Toddlers is fun and enlightening for kids and a great resource for parents and educators.

MY THOUGHTS ON THIS BOOK

This is just the most adorable little Bible story book! Ilove the Berenstain Bears, and each new book is just as awesome as the others. The special thing about this book is that it is designed especially for smaller children. It has thick sturdy pages that won’t rip and so your child can play with this book, look at it for hours and will not hurt it. The colors are vivid and bright and I love the picture on the front of the Bear’s family reading. You just can’t go wrong with this special Bible story book.

Easter Stories and Prayers (Little Blessings) 

by Kathleen Long Bostrom

easter stories and tales

Celebrate the real meaning of Easter with your kids. This special edition of Little Blessings books includes four books in one: Who is Jesus, Why is there a Cross, What about Heaven, and What is Prayer.

Each title is designed to help kids learn more about Jesus and his sacrifice for us. This volume includes a special note from author Kathleen Bostrom on how to help kids understand the meaning of Easter and the good news of Jesus’ resurrection.

Full-color art of the adorable characters draws kids in and makes them want to hear the stories over and over again. Scripture references support each answer to the questions so parents can study more.

MY THOUGHTS ON THIS BOOK

This is a beautiful little book inside and out. The Easter Stories and Prayers has four different stories, with adorable illustrations for each story. Each story is short enough to read at one setting and each story has scripture reference so that you can read the scripture along with the story. If you are looking for a really good children’s book to tell the Easter story, this is one that you will love, and your child will love you for purchasing this wonderful book. What a wonderful addition to an Easter basket.

Or if you are buying this after the Easter holiday, you can still read these stories to you children, and your child will love looking at the pictures. The story of Easter is one that should be told throughout the year, and what better way than having a precious book like this.

MY THOUGHTS ON THIS BOOK

This is a sweet and wonderful devotional for children! I love the adorable pictures, the colors, the padded cover, and the pages. When you have this book in your hand, you can feel quality, because it is a very high quality made book. And the devotions are so sweet and short enough for even a small child to sit through. Though they are detailed enough that your child will learn about Jesus as you read to them. And I can see kids asking many questions about the different devotions, which is very good, and a great way to learn. And I really love that each devotion has a Bible verse, snuggle time take away, Bible time activity and hugs time. All of this put together makes for an awesome and a must have devotion for your children.
