My thoughts:

Are you looking for a good way to introduce your little one to a nightly prayer routine? Bedtime Prayers That End With A Hug! is a wonderful resource to achieve that goal. It is filled with 52 nightly prayers that address a different topic each night. The language is simple so your preschooler will easily understand the topic that is being taught. 

The illustrations by Ruth Zeglin are beautiful and calming, just the thing for a wind down at the end of the day. Each day's prayer is broken down into segments titled Snuggle Time, Bedtime Bible Thought, My Hug-a-Bye Prayer and then it ends with a nighty night hug time! You are instructed to "give the one who seeks the Lord a great big hug!"

I'm looking forward to sharing this with my little ones each night! What a beautiful habit to get your little ones into.
