Reading bedtime stories to children has been an important part of families’ good-night routines for generations because stories bring us close, create memories, and help us communicate. What better way to spend the last few minutes of the day than snuggled up with a book that pours God’s love into children’s hearts? Children and parents alike will delight in the engaging and beautiful stories and illustrations found in Words to Dream On by Diane Stortz, a new release from Tommy Nelson.
A combination Bible storybook and book of prayers, Words to Dream On is the perfect bedtime storybook for young children, with a "once upon a time" voice that is also true to God's Word. More than 50 stories from the Old and New Testaments create an overview of the entire story arc of the Bible. Stories are selected and retold for young children with a focus on God's love, care, protection, trustworthiness and power.
Each story includes an engaging title, a Bedtime Blessing (a short summary thought), Words to Dream On (a brief Bible verse), and a Sleepy-Time Prayer (a good-night prayer tied to the theme of the story). The book also includes a short letter to parents that includes ideas for establishing a good bedtime routine with young children and tips for reading aloud to children at bedtime.
Children will enjoy spending quality time with their parents reading this book, in addition to the stories and beautifully illustrated images.
