God's Little Princess Bedtime Devotional by Sheila Walsh ~ A Book Review and Giveaway



Sheila Walsh
Juvenile Nonfiction

About the book:

A great combination of bedtime theme, encouraging and age-appropriate devotions, and the bestselling God’s Little Princess® brand, all wrapped up in a creative, sparkly cover is, sure to be a hit.

Bedtime means special moments to share between a parent and daughter, and God’s Little Princess Bedtime Devotional will help settle her heart and mind as she heads to bed. Bestselling author Sheila Walsh offers 106 daily devotions: each with a scripture, a short thought, a rhyming prayer, and a “Good Night Giggles and Grace” activity that will send every little princess off to bed full of smiles, feeling loved and secure.


My thoughts:

If your little princess loves the Gigi books from Sheila Walsh she is going to be delighted to spend a little time each night curled up with you reading a devotion that expounds on the principles taught in those books. The God's Little Princess Bedtime Devotional is designed for your four to seven year old little girl. 

The book includes 106 daily devotions that start out with a scripture reading and then a devotional thought that pertains to the topic covered in the scripture. After the devotion there is a section called Good-Night Giggles and Grace that suggests a fun activity to help apply what has just been taught. The nice part about this section is that the activities are calming and quiet so your little one won't get all wound up right before bed! The daily section ends with a simple prayer.

I enjoyed sharing several days of this with one of my sweet little girls. It is the perfect activity to round out your day. What a blessing to read scripture together with your little one and then help them retain it by participating in a relevant activity. I would recommend this to anyone that is looking for a great way to introduce their little girl to the daily habit of devotions.

  1. Every night we read several short stories or a few chapters of a longer book to my 5 and 7 year old. We are currently reading Charlotte's Webb. I'm not sure if it will be a good idea at the end of the book but they are enjoying it now. My 1 year old doesn't get a story, just lots of rocking and songs mostly. Although I'm not sure why, we always read to my older girls at that age.

      Ahhh...sounds very nice and soothing! By the way I loved Charlotte's Webb. It is sad at the end but it is such a great lesson.

      Who doesn't love Gigi?!! Sheila Walsh came up with such a adorably precocious character when she started writing about Gigi. I love sharing her stories with my grand girls.

  3. We change diapers, put on PJs, get in bed, then brush our teeth (I know that sounds backwards, but that's the only way to corral them all!), then we say prayers, and give hugs and kisses all around. Multiply that by 4 since we have quadruplets!

      Hey I say if in the end the teeth got brushed then it was a success! When we keep the 6 grands chaos abounds and I always wonder how I did it with just my original three.

      When you say "then lights out" I instantly hear little giggles because that is what always went on at our house!

      Oh I like the idea of talking about what happens the next day. Such a sweet uplifting way to end the day.

      Baths most nights mean you are successful. By the end of the day most of us are like . . . just go to bed already so I can sit and stare and regain my sanity! LOL

      I've heard of warm milk before but never tried it (I'm lactose intolerant). Does it seem to help make them sleepy?
