Young children thrive on routine and rituals, and a Bible story at bedtime is one of the best routines to establish! A combination Bible storybook and book of prayers, Words to Dream On is the perfect bedtime storybook for young children, with a "once upon a time" voice that is also true to Gods Word. Over 50 storiesfrom the Old and New Testamentscreate an overview of the entire story arc of the Bible. Stories are selected and retold for young children with a focus on Gods love, care, protection, trustworthiness, and power.
Each story includes an engaging title, a Bedtime Blessing (a short summary thought), Words to Dream On (a brief Bible verse), and a Sleepy-Time Prayer (a good-night prayer tied to the theme of the story). The book also includes a short letter to parents that includes tested ideas for establishing a good bedtime routine with young children and tips for reading aloud to children at bedtime.

Even though I was quite a bit older, it became a routine we all came to expect and one that I carried on some with my own children. I bet, if you asked my sister today, one of her favorite childhood memories would be of that time of day and her special one-on-one time with Mom.
Words to Dream On: Bedtime Stories and Prayers by Diane Stortz is just such a book that will provide others with the opportunity to share the Bible with their children in wording that is easy for them to understand and illustrations that will capture the attention as well. Each of the 52 stories begins with a short scripture, a story that illustrated the scripture and closes with a brief prayer and words that are intended to be a promise that will bless the reader that they can store in their heart for when difficult times come. Also included are tips and encouragement to the parent on how to create your own bedtime routine.
The book is a sturdy, hardbound volume, each story bright and cheerful like the color. Is it that different from other children's Bible story books? Not that much, but I do like how it includes the prayer you can pray with your child and the "bedtime blessing" which is the promise/encouragement. Whether it be this newly published collection or a family favorite, begin sharing with your child the promises from God's Word early. What better thing than to close each and every day snuggled together and reading from a child's version of favorite Bible stories.
Two thumbs up! I did receive this book free from the publisher and was in no way obligated to leave a positive review.
