Devotionals for little kids are hard to write – and too often I find them shallow and missing out on the big-picture of what scripture is telling us. But I have to say I was impressed with the Bedtime Prayers that End with a Hug. Most appropriate for young children (I’d say 2-4), they are short and to the point, yet they are also very clear and theologically sound.
One thing I loved about the book was the simplicity and also directness of the prayers themselves. These were prayers I can pray with my girls, that they can understand, but also that have deep truth contained in them. The book makes a great supplement to reading an appropriate children’s bible (personally, I would recommend the Jesus Storybook Bible by Sally Loyd-Jones) and can begin the life-long process of teaching our kids both the importance of pray and the process of actually praying.
Overall I’ll give this book 4/5 stars. For the record, I did a receive a complementary copy of the book from the publisher in exchange for an honest, though not necessarily favorable, review.
