Book Review :: Words To Dream On: Bedtime Bible Stories and Prayers by Diane Stortz, illustrated by Diance Le Feyer

Words To Dream On is a collection of Bible stories, based on the concept that you will be reading these stories in the evenings with your little one(s). 
My attention was instantly caught with the illustration on the cover of Words To Dream On, and the interior illustrations do not disappoint. The interior illustrations keep the same calm, deep color palette and illustration style that is found in the cover image. 

Words To Dream On is a collection of 52 stories from both the Old Testament and New Testament. (There are 26 OT stories and 26 NT stories.) Having a total of 52 stories makes this a book that would be easy to split into weekly readings. 

The stories are a good length - 3 pages each. Each story starts with "Words to Dream On" (a verse to set the focus for the story - which may or may not come from the story itself) and ends with a "Sleepy-Time Prayer" and "Bedtime Blessing". More complete Bible book/chapter references are also given for each story (after the title).

Additionally, there are tips for creating a bedtime routine and tips for reading with children at the back of the book. Everything is wrapped up in a beautifully illustrated hardcover with a ribbon bookmark. 

I think that Words To Dream On is a wonderful book to read with little ones...both during the day and at night. 
FTC Declaration: The publisher has provided me with a complimentary copy of this book or advanced reading copy through the BookLook Bloggers book review bloggers program. This does not change the fact that I will give my honest opinion in my reviews.
