Night Night, Jungle was written by Amy Parker and illustrated by Virginia Allyn, is a sweet story that aids in lulling children to bed. This story takes place in a Jungle slowing down for the evening to rest their heads for the night ahead. The discovery of many different kinds of animal friends is a welcome surprise with the turn of every single page with this cleverly written and delightfully illustrated offering.
The Little Critter Little Blessings Collection by Mercer Meyer is wonderful. I have enjoyed this author’s work when I was a young child an am pleased that they are still offering new and relevant stories for our current generation.
Drawn in the same familiar art style and wording from the characters just like I remember it, these books have been a walk down memory lane. Nostalgia aside for myself, these stories have been an entirely new experience for my nine, seven, and nearly two-year-old. How pleased I am that they’ve come to like the same characters that drew their own mom in.
Every Day with Jesus: 365 Devotions for Kids by Pastor Dr. Charles Stanley is his first ever devotional for children. It is adapted from his book Every Day in His Presence, Every Day with Jesus and is coordinated with his devotional for adults. The coordination makes it so children and adults in the same family can discover the same theme and scripture on the same exact day. This coordination beautifully opens the door for conversation within the family unit. However, this book stands well on its own if you don’t have the one for adults.

A Very Happy Easter Prayer is a delightfully wonderful book that points children to be thankful for all the wonderful happenings the season brings. Aside from everything Spring usually brings in the beauty of Nature, children are reminded of God’s gift to us His son, Jesus, and that during this time as Christians we celebrate the resurrection.
With Love, From Me to You By Dr. Mary Manz Simon is an endearing tale for children that helps them to understand what love is and what it can look like. It’s the perfect book to pick up for both boys and girls ages 2- 6 years old during not just the upcoming Valentine’s Day holiday season but year round.
In this book, we are introduced to a postman bear that travels here and there on a train. On, this train, we meet several different characters both young and old as the story unfolds. The postman sends good cheer by waving to someone that is alone, stopping to share kindness with someone that is sad, reminding someone who is angry that God loves them, and so forth.

“Twas the Evening of Christmas” is a wonderful retelling of the story of when Jesus was born. Like Clement C. Moore’s classic, “Twas the Night Before Christmas” this twist written by Glenys Nellist and illustrated by Elena Selivanova follows a similar rhythm and verse.
