Snuggle Time Psalms by Glenys Nellist, Cee Biscoe

Did you think the book of Psalms was only for adults? Think again! Snuggle Time Psalms, written by Glenys Nellist and illustrated by Cee Biscoe, is the perfect way to introduce little ones to the poetry book of the Bible. This padded cover board book uses simple concepts, rhyming text and adorable art to help children engage with the Psalms. Beginning with 'Bedtime Peace' and ending with 'Wonderful Me!' this collection of fifteen bedtime poems enables young children to discover the One who holds them in his arms, leads them like a shepherd, created them just as they are, and cherishes them with a love that never ends...snuggle and see!

About The Author
Glenys Nellis

Although I live in Michigan, USA, I was born and raised in a little village in northern England.

I grew up in a big old house, with two wonderful parents and seven siblings. My dad was the one who introduced me to the gospel. My mum was the one who encouraged me to work with children.

And at primary school, my teacher was the one who urged me to write. One day a week, I was one of the lucky few withdrawn from the classroom to sit in big, comfy armchairs in the teachers' lounge. There, in front of a roaring log fire, with pencil and paper at the ready, I would write.

I never would have imagined that four decades later, I would be blessed enough to be an author of children's books, or be married to a wonderful husband, or be mum to four sons, and a grandma too. But of course, no eye has seen, no ear has heard, no mind has conceived what God has prepared for those who love him. (1 Corinthians 2:9)

And to God alone, be the glory.

 I’m very lucky to have been illustrating picture books full-time since early 2008. My first picture book, commissioned by Little Tiger Press, was  ‘Gruff The Grump’, written by Steve Smallman, which was published in 2009 in the UK, US and 9 other countries. It was one of the 'Reads Of The Year' in the Younger Children category of the Red House Children's Book Awards 2010. Since then I've illustrated several picture boks and board books for a variety of publishers.

2016 has started well as I continue to work on a four-book contract with a US publisher.  Having recently completed commissions for Korean, Slovenian, American and Australian publishers, it's great to carry on illustrating for different international clients.

My Review

Snuggle Time Psalms almost brought tears to my eyes, it is so sweet and lovely, and the perfect sharing gift for that special toddler in your life.
There are fifteen bedtime prayers that will bring the psalms into your little ones life, and allow you the joy to share them. Sharing the word of God with your Child is a blessing in itself, and with your arm around your love one, pure joy.
The book has a darling mother and baby elephant on the padded cover, and the rest of the book is made of sturdy cardboard, just right for little hands.
I received this book from Book Look Bloggers, and was not required to give a positive review.
