God Bless You and Good Night, written by Hannah C. Hall, with illustrations by Steve Whitlow, is a darling little board book my one-year-old just loves. She is really interested in animals and all of a sudden has begun to ask me to read to her. Where a few weeks ago she couldn’t sit still for story time, now she hands me book after book, squealing in delight as I read and let her turn the pages. She loves when I make the animal sounds and begs me to read the same book over and over again.
With softly painted pictures of baby animals and their mommies as they get ready for bed, I fell in love with God Bless You and Good Night from the very first rhyme to the final goodnight kiss. This book is a precious keepsake, one I can imagine I will read to my grand-babies one day.
Some books end up on the shelf with the many others we own, getting read only a few times a year. God Bless You and Good Night, however, has a special place in a basket on the floor—the basket my girls choose books from most. I am so excited that my one-year-old in particular wants to be read to that I don’t even mind reading the same book over and over again. It’s just part of being a mommy!
God Bless You and Good Night is recommended for children ages 1 to 4 years. If your little ones are anything like mine, they will be snuggling with this book rather than a stuffed animal. As I share this with you, in fact, my baby is asleep in her swing with a book under her arm. I guess it’s a good thing I’m a Tommy Nelson Mommy—good books are a true treasure in our house!
