Goodnight, Angels

Goodnight, Angels by Melody Carlson is a very cute board book which was provided to me through the BookSneeze program and Zonderkidz Publishing. This book is a modern take on the classic Goodnight, Moon. The rhythm and rhyme, like Goodnight, Moon, are great for toddlers and the repetition is predictable and exactly what little kids love. The dog peeks his way into every picture making a fun "find it" game for your toddler. The little boy in this book remembers to offer a prayer to God along with saying goodnight to all of the things in his world before falling asleep.

It's A God Thing

18126599It's a God Thing was a very fun book to read, provided to me by Thomas Nelson Publishing through the BookSneeze program in exchange for an honest review. It reminded me of the "Chicken Soup for the Soul" series but with much more of a God twist.
There are forty-six independent stories in this book, each telling a great story of God's provision, love, and/or power. There are stories of births and deaths, stories of accidents and natural disaster, stories of bombs and wars.
Some of the chapter titles really make you wonder. What is God going to do with yellow cups? Or a dog barking at a chicken? Each story gives you a glimpse as to how God can and does care for each one of His children.
