Book Review: Bedtime Prayers that End with a Hug by Stephen Elkins

*I received this book via Tyndale House Publishers for purposes of review, however all opinions are my own.

Bedtime Prayers that end with a Hug!
by Stephen Elkins

About the Book:
"Turn your child’s bedtime into a calm and soothing time with God. Little children love getting—and giving—hugs. Hugs generate warmth, affection, and a feeling of acceptance. Bedtime Prayers That End with a Hug! offers a fun and heartwarming way to end your child’s day. This padded hardcover book features 52 easy-to-understand Snuggle Time moment based on Bible themes, along with sweet illustrations, simple lessons to help children apply the Bible to daily life, memory verses from the NLT, and heartwarming bedtime stories. Each story wraps up with an opportunity for parent and child to share a great big hug!"

My Review:
Love this book!  I so wish it had been around when my kids were littler, this would have been a favorite!  This book has 52 Bible based topics that touch on emotions and moments that ease the anxiety and even to teach a lesson.  I love that it is hard backed with a padded cover, it makes it more inviting for little hands to hold on to and it is so full of colorful illustrations that keep the little eyes looking.  
Each topic has a simple prayer, a Snuggle Time moment, and a Hug Me section.  There are also Bible verses that are age appropriate.  With topics like showing kindness to others, praying for self control and not being afraid of the dark, this book is a great way to ease those fears with God's word.  The beautiful illustrations are calming and sweet.  This book is recommended for children 3 - 5 but I would have read it to my 2 year old and on up to 8 or 9 years old even.  It would make a great gift too!
