    Synopsis:
    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. 
    Features & Benefits:
    • Sparkly, embellished cover that girls will love
    • Combines the popular princess and the bestselling bedtime themes
    • 106 devotions, prayers, scriptures, and inspirational thoughts
    • Adorable full-color art throughout

    Oh, this is indeed a treasure! There are about 100 bedtime devotions, prayers and activities to help your little girl grow closer to God. I know in this day and age, it seems to be asking for trouble to talk about God, but I for one will not cow down to pressure. I firmly believe that our children need to be taught about God and what it means and then it will be up to them later in life to judge for themselves what they believe. But, until then, they need the knowledge and the lessons to make that decision.

    I don't preach about my faith, I see no point in shoving it down others throats, especially if they believe otherwise, but when I come across such a rare gem, I feel an obligation to share it with others of like minds.  I know that this won't be for everyone, but I know someone will appreciate the beautifully written book and the cute little pictures of girls and sugarplums.

    I especially love the little prayers at the end of the bedtime stories and hopefully, it will teach your precious little girl the meaning of prayers and how to pray.

    Check it out at Amazon and do go thru a few of the pages to see why I am so thrilled about this book. Read the one especially for animals titled God Made Animals. Then the activity for that one is Can you name an animal for each letter in the ABC's?  That is what I meant for activities at the end of each story and then there will be a prayer.

    You will also see other books in the God's Little Princess series that she has written!

    Happy Reading!

    I try to read stories to my son to teach him to read before bedtime!

    We do read to our children or my oldest reads on her own. It'd be nice to have a new devotional to use with them, though.
