Why Do We Say Goodnight?
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 thoughts: I loved the illustrations in this book! The story is about a little girl who is afraid of the dark and wants to know why we say good night when she doesn't see the night as good. I love how the story is about her mom banishing her fears through telling her that God is with her and has made the night. While my youngest thought a few of the pictures were a bit scary (the one eyed monster and dinosaur on the front cover), both of my kids loved the pictures with Jesus in them! Over all, this one is a hit with the kids.
I received this book from the publisher. This is my honest review.
