First Line:  “From the sunlight in my window to the glow of the moonlight, Thank You for the blessings You give from “good Morning” to “Good Night.”

Summary (from GoodReads):

Cuddle up with your little ones and count all the blessings God put in their day.

This book is a precious way to put your little ones to bed at night and fill their thoughts with the many good things that have filled their day. It’s a great way to teach them gratitude and help them sleep soundly at night.

Whether it’s Mommy’s goodnight kisses, Grandpa’s comfy lap, or pancakes stacked THIS high, there are so many blessings to count before bed! Written in rhyme and coupled with adorable illustrations, this follow up book to best-selling Night Night Prayer will be an instant bedtime hit.

Favorite Quote from the Book:
Thank You, God, for soft kitten purrs and sloppy dog kisses too!  My pets don’t have to say a word when they tell me, “I love you.”

My Thoughts:
This beautiful baby board book knocks one out of the park.  The lesson to express gratitude for the simple yet wonderfully miraculous things in life from kittens purrs, and sloppy dog kisses to pancakes with syrup and a sky full of stars can not be taught at too young an age and is a lesson that we all can benefit from even as adults.

Marijan Ramljak’s perfectly warm and cozy illustrations are a perfect match to Amy Parker’s beautiful message and never grow boring.  This book is a wonderful tool to instill the habit of thankfulness while at the same time enjoying snuggly, cuddly, beautiful together time with your little one.

My Rating:

I loved this book
