God Bless You & Good Night Book Review and Giveaway

I received this book free to facilitate this review. Affiliate links may be in this posting. Thanks for supporting my blog.

God Bless You & Good Night is a hardcover children's book written by Hannah C. Hall and illustrated by Steve Whitlow. Adorable animals and rhyming verses grace the pages of this book to help soothe your little one to slumberland. This book helps remind children of God's blessings and how much they are loved as they nod off to sleep at night.

What We Thought:
This lovely family-friendly story from the A God Bless Book series is perfect for young ones because of its rhyming verse and gorgeous illustrations by Steve Whitlow. This book portrays snugly animal parents that are getting their offspring ready for bed. They go through a bedtime routine of: seeing the night sky, eating a bedtime snack, having a warm bath, putting on jammies, reading a story, getting comfy, counting blessings, hugging, praying, singing a lullaby, saying I love you, getting a teddy bear and blanket to sleep with, counting sheep, closing eyes, turning on a nightlight, and tucking in. The sweet rhymes are sometimes silly, but also lovely.

I feel that this book makes the bedtime ritual go on a bit too long. If you are trying to get your children to bed quickly this might not be the best book for you. I think this book might be better for evening time not right before bed because it does cover just about the whole bedtime routine and not really helping lull your child off to sleep until the end. It also misses the teeth brushing part of our bedtime routine. I don't have a working bathtub, so we don't do the warm baths...just showers which we do not do every night anyway. I also feel snack time shouldn't be right before bedtime. So, this book has me a little conflicted. I do like the book, but it might be better read when each of these bedtime things are being done because otherwise your child will be asking for all the things that the critters in the book are getting when you are trying to get them to go to sleep. I might have to omit the snack and bathtub pages completely if I decide to read this again.
