I am always looking for Christian reading material for my granddaughter and I'm thrilled with this new book that introduces God's Word to little ones. The sparkly hardback cover and the colorful illustrations on almost every page will gain the attention of children immediately but it is the content inside that will keep them interested. Author Diane Stortz shares 52 different stories from both the Old and New Testament and she starts with the Creation story, 'In the Beginning, God', that is based on Genesis 1-2. As the children journey through the Bible they encounter special people and amazing events and then, in the final story, they are assured that they can be 'Forever with Jesus', as related in Revelation 21-22.

God's Words to Dream On is perfect for reading to your children or grandchildren and it is also a book that they will later enjoy reading by themselves. It has everything that is needed for family devotion time and I especially like that each of the 52 stories has Bible scripture, a Bedtime Blessing, and a Sleepy-Time Prayer. This is a book that I will gladly share with my granddaughter and it is also one that I will give so that others can enjoy it also.

I received a copy of this book from Celebrate Lit but was not under any obligation to write a review. All opinions are strictly my own,

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

More from Diane

A happy bedtime contributes so much to a child’s welfare. Perhaps a warm bath, a story, some cuddles with mom or dad, and a prayer equal a time-tested bedtime routine. These last moments of the day, done right, create a wonderful sense of family security and love for children as they fall asleep.

Bedtime also gives us a wonderful opportunity to help children grow secure in God’s love. I wrote God’s Words to Dream On for just that reason. The stories not only create an overview of the Bible’s big story, but they focus on God’s love and care—the ways He shows us His power and protection and the reasons we can trust Him. Each story includes a simple Bible verse to remember, a simple prayer, and a bedtime blessing for your child.

Young children thrive on routine, and I think a Bible story at bedtime might be one of the best!
