Any child from 4 to 7 years old who loves to visit the zoo will have a fantastic time with God Is with Me Through the Night by Julie Cantrell. Taking for granted that youngsters get scared at night on occasion, Cantrell shares Isaiah 4:10, "Do not fear, for I am with you." She then uses photographs of both domestic and wild animals to demonstrate that children are loved by their parents, siblings, and most of all by God. For example, when she writes that as a family, "We laugh," she shows a photo of two dolphins with their mouths wide open. When she writes, "We snuggle," she shows a photo of a male and female lion cuddling their two young cubs. Other times there are full sentences, such as, "I know I am not alone," accompanied by a photo of a huge family of baby rabbits climbing all over each other.

Drawing on biblical examples, Cantrell reminds the readers that God protected Daniel from the lions. Many of the photographs are extremely comical, as when the narrator says, "I can say out loud, 'I am loved!'" and there is a photograph of a big-eyed monkey with his lips puckered and his neck extended as he screeches.

This is the kind of book that young readers can practice their reading with, while also being reminded of God's care and protection. – Dr. Dennis E. Hensley, www.ChristianBookPreviews.com

    God is with Me through the Night by Julie Cantrell is the companion volume to God is with Me through the Day. Again Mia's thoughts: the kitty was silly, afraid of its own shadow. My favorite part of the book was the little puppy feeling alone. Some of the pictures made me feel sad along with the animals. I think I will sleep better tonight because God is with me. My review: This book closely parallels the previous one with another message of not feeling alone and trusting in God's care. Mia strongly related to the images of the animals. In the photos where they appeared sad or frightened, she oohed and awwed in empathy. Following through with the message of hope, we are both hopeful that it is one that will stick with her when she is afraid at night. This set of books would make a terrific gift for a baby shower or as a Christmas present.

    What a wonderful message that needs reinforced in some children's minds that God is there all the time; even when we sleep. Same message as companion book God is with me through the Day.

    God is With Me Through the Night by Julie Cantrell is a companion book to God is With Me Through the Day. In fact, it's an extremely similar book, except it discusses nighttime fears instead of daytime fears.The book outlines a child's typical evening: he plays with his family, snuggles with his parents, and gets tucked into bed with a kiss from mama. But then, in the dark of his bedroom, he begins to feel frightened. He hears "weird noises" and sees "strange shadows." But "Mama tells me God is with me, even in the dark." God kept Daniel safe from the lions, and he keeps children safe, too. "I roar like a tiger, 'I am safe!' And then all the scary thoughts go away. I fall asleep and find my happy dreams."In God's hands, the child feels brave, and loved, and safe. The book ends by quoting Isaiah 41:10 ("Do not fear, for I am with you.")Throughout, the book is illustrated by nature photographs that are beautiful and cute. For example, when bravery is mentioned, we see a bear cub standing on its hind legs and stretching its paws. When happiness is mentioned, we see an ostrich that looks like its smiling. When stretching after a good night's sleep is mentioned, we see a giraffe stretching its hind legs. The photos are fascinating for young kids.What I Like: One of the problems with picture books about fear is that it's difficult to make them universal enough they don't put ideas about previously unknown fears into a child's head. In this case, if your child doesn't already imagine scary shadows and sounds in the dark, this is not a book you want to read them. On the other hand, if your child is afraid of the dark, this is a great title to have in your home library. What I Dislike: I strongly wish the author mentioned prayer as a remedy for fear.Overall Rating: Very good.Kristina Seleshanko, Managing Editor, Christian Children's Book Review
