Why Do We Say Good Night? by Champ Thornton, Rommel Ruiz (Illustrator)







Going to bed and turning out the light can be a hard time for many children. Award-winning author Champ Thornton wrote this beautifully designed and illustrated book to help parents comfort their children with three truths about God. As a mother and her little daughter talk, they remember together that God made the night, he sees in the dark, and he watches over them just like a shepherd protects his sheep. Children and parents will want to start a new nighttime tradition of reading together about why we can say that the night is good.
In this important, engaging children's book, parents can bring comfort and encouragement to their children, reminding them Jesus is near.

My Review

First the bright colors of this little book draw your eyes in, and then the illustrations are delightful.
Getting your little one to settle down can sometimes be a difficult feat, but now there is a book to share that focuses of God.
So many cute sayings and I loved “just like a shepherd guards his sheep, the Lord protects when we’re asleep”. Highlighting our Faith and show that Jesus is always near.
What a great addition to our book shelf, and in touch with and encouraging our Christian Faith!

I received this book through the Publisher New Growth Press, and was not required to give a positive review.
