Guest Review from Donna Cline
What I think you should know:
God’s Words to Dream on is an illustrated devotional for children. It is written by Diane Stortz and illustrated by Diane Le Feyer.the book contains over 50 stories appropriate for bedtime along with a simple memory verse and a prayer for each.
What I think about the book:
This would be a great nightly devotional for families with small children. It kept my five and eight year olds attention. My sons gave this five stars. They also enjoyed the illustrations and the simple verses that went with each story. Stortz presented beloved Bible stories in an easy to understand audience appropriate way. I appreciate the way that the stories were presented for kids. I would not hesitate to recommend this to a friend or to give this as a gift.
I received a complimentary copy of this book from Celebrate Lit, this in no way influenced my review. All opinions are my own.

More from Diane
A happy bedtime contributes so much to a child’s welfare. Perhaps a warm bath, a story, some cuddles with mom or dad, and a prayer equal a time-tested bedtime routine. These last moments of the day, done right, create a wonderful sense of family security and love for children as they fall asleep.
Bedtime also gives us a wonderful opportunity to help children grow secure in God’s love. I wrote God’s Words to Dream On for just that reason. The stories not only create an overview of the Bible’s big story, but they focus on God’s love and care—the ways He shows us His power and protection and the reasons we can trust Him. Each story includes a simple Bible verse to remember, a simple prayer, and a bedtime blessing for your child.
Young children thrive on routine, and I think a Bible story at bedtime might be one of the best!
