God Is Watching Over You – Book Review

God Is Watching Over You

God Is Watching Over You by P.J. Lyons – Book Review

When you’re a child, you need to know that everything is safe and sound in the world before you can peacefully sleep at night.

When you’re a parent, you want to know that your child is tucked safely and soundly in their beds each night, dreaming the most pleasant of dreams!

That’s one of the reasons that bedtime rituals are important to both children and parents alike. They provide children with the sense of sweet comfort and safety that they need to nod off into the land of slumber, and provide parents with the opportunity to show their children how much they love them.

Finding the perfect bedtime story to read to our children is an important part of our children’s bedtime rituals. Since the words they hear and the images they see will be the last things on their mind as they drift into sleep, bedtime is the perfect time to let them know that God is always protecting them – even when we’re not around.

If you’re looking for a book filled with warm and comforting images that your young children will love – one filled with loving messages you’ll never tire of reading and your children will never tire of hearing – then I recommend God Is Watching Over You by P. J. Lyons as part of your children’s bedtime ritual!

God Is Watching Over You is a padded board book, written for children 4 through 8, that’s filled with rhyming text and the soft, watercolor illustrations of Tim Warnes. The story reminds us that no matter what we are doing, God is always watching over us, protecting us, and caring for us – “every night and each day too”!

God Is Watching Over You is a delight to read – a delight to hold – and a delight to share.

I rate this book 5 out of 5 stars.
