Bedtime stories. Do you remember them from when you were little? Or, do you remember reading them to your own kids? There’s just something special about bedtime stories, and so I couldn’t resist reviewing a collection of them for BookLook Bloggers.
Really Woolly 5 Minute Bedtime Treasury
The Really Woolly 5 Minute Bedtime Treasury features “Really Woolly” creatures, which apparently are a “thing” I hadn’t even been aware of. A bit of searching, though, led me to discover these sweet animals on cards, books, and more. They’re a product of Dayspring, as is this book.
First things first: I like the feel of this book. It’s a hardcover, and the cover feels a little padded (how do bookmakers do this? Don’t know, but I like it). It’s kind of heavy, which gives it a sturdy feel. On the other hand, it is a bit too heavy, perhaps, for its preschool audience. But, since I’m assuming parents will be doing most of the reading here, that is probably not an issue.
Each chapter of the book contains about five minutes worth of bedtime reading. These include a mix of rhymes, Bible verses, Bible stories, prayers, and lessons about God.
The illustrations are colorful in a pastel kind of way that should be soothing to little eyes before bedtime.
I like this book a lot and think it would make a wonderful baby shower gift, or Christmas or birthday gift for a toddler.
I’m getting a little sleepy just looking at it now. Sweet dreams!
