I wanted to extend my sincerest thanks to Jackie Johnston at Thomas Nelson for giving me the opportunity to review Sheila Walsh’s Sweet Dreams Princess: God’s Little Princess Bedtime Bible Stories, Devotions, & Prayers.
If you have small children, chances are you’ve had your share of opportunities to read bedtime stories. In my experience, far too much of the children’s literature available today is full of nothing but silliness. While there is a time and place for silliness, there are times when it’s important for the stories we share with our children to take on a more serious and thought-provoking tone. As I leafed through the pages in this book, I knew it would present many opportunities for heart-felt spiritual discussions with my daughters.
At first glance, you’ll notice that this book is geared towards young girls between ages 4 & 8. Your girls will like the jeweled crown and puffy pink pillow on the cover and the many colorful illustrations throughout. This book has 81 different stories from both the Old and New Testaments based on the International Children’s Bible. After each Bible story there is a sweet dreams devotion and either a prayer, promise, or praise. It’s the sweet dreams devotions that give this book an A+ in my book. That’s where you’ll find further explanation to each Bible story and some simple questions that can lead to a great discussion.
I highly recommend Sweet Dreams Princess: God’s Little Princess Bedtime Bible Stories, Devotions, & Prayers. This would make a great Christmas gift and will be perfect for that New Year’s resolution to share a nightly devotion and prayer time with your children.
