Reviews - What do customers think about Bedtime Prayers That End With A Hug!?

Great Nightly Devotion for Ages 3-5! Must Have!  Mar 13, 2015
I loved this little prayer devotional and so did my son! It was simply perfect for him at the age of 2 with colorful pictures and wonderful rhyming phrases such as "Nothing too big, nothing too small, just pray to God about it all!"

It was so cool to see my son get excited about prayer time! When he was ready to go to bed he would bring this book over to me so we could read our nightly chapter! I think his favorite part was the hug time since he seemed most enthuastic about that! However he really enjoyed looking at the pictures as well and pointing out different things such as birds or kittens!

However, not only did my son truly benefit from this book, but I did too! They little sayings and prayers stuck with me as I read through the book! The snuggle time thoughts were a good opening to the bedtime Bible thoughts and the variety of things that we prayed about was fanastic! It goes from all the way to praying for our pets, to self-control, and probably my favorite one: prayer about saying "I love you, Lord!"

The only downfall about the book is that I really wish there was a ribbon to mark the page! It would have been helpful since my little toddler likes to take out any bookmarks in the book!

Beside that, this book is a must have for young kids! I definitely plan to reread this one again in the future because it has great messages/prayers that a child can understand and hold his attention (granted I know my son didn't get everything being so young, but he will soon enough)! I highly recommend it for kids 3-5!

I give Bedtime Prayers That End with a Hug! a 5 out of 5 stars!

Beautifully Illustrated!  Dec 22, 2013
This book of bedtime prayers was written for young children from the ages of three to five years old. It was designed to be used as loving lessons in preparing the child for the routine of bedtime prayer. Explanations are given to explain what prayer is and who the child is praying to, as well as a description regarding the importance of communication with God. Composed of 52 different bedtime prayers featuring a different topic, prayer preparations are arranged in steps. The first step is an easy to understand Bible verse. Following that is "snuggle time" which equates to a brief story pertinent to the Bible verse, a "bedtime Bible thought," and "my hug-a-bye prayer." This is followed by "Nighty Night! and the time to give the child a loving hug, communicating parental love and the love of God.

The illustrations included in Bedtime Prayer That End With A Hug are beautifully done, colorful, age appropriate, and diverse. They are cheerful and whimsical, adding a sense of fun and happiness to a child's training in bedtime prayer. These illustrations are impressive and add an atmosphere of joy to the world of prayer.

The bedtime prayers relate to numerous topics, such as being thankful, loving others, making good choices, being joyful, friendship, etc. Other topics that are featured include, fear of the dark, fear of thunderstorms, worrying, etc. Some of these concepts could be skipped over if a child doesn't exhibit those particular fears. My personal feeling in this regard is that introducing these concepts could instill fears in a child that otherwise don't exist. "Going to the Doctor" is one example of the possibility of instilling fear where there may be none. The verse for that particular prayer entry is Isaiah 41:10, "Don't be afraid, for I am with you." If the child exhibits a fear of doctors this is a helpful and loving way to give comfort, but with a child who is comfortable with his/her doctor this could instill fear where none exists.

It is important that the parent or caregiver use discretion with each individual child regarding what is appropriate for that given child and his or her age. Overall, I found this to be a very useful method of introducing bedtime prayer to young children. A few of the terms used are not age appropriate, but simplifying those terms would help to explain the message.

Bedtime Prayers That End With A Hug!  Dec 18, 2013
Are you looking for a good way to introduce your little one to a nightly prayer routine? Bedtime Prayers That End With A Hug! is a wonderful resource to achieve that goal. It is filled with 52 nightly prayers that address a different topic each night. The language is simple so your preschooler will easily understand the topic that is being taught.

The illustrations by Ruth Zeglin are beautiful and calming, just the thing for a wind down at the end of the day. Each day's prayer is broken down into segments titled Snuggle Time, Bedtime Bible Thought, My Hug-a-Bye Prayer and then it ends with a nighty night hug time! You are instructed to "give the one who seeks the Lord a great big hug!"

I'm looking forward to sharing this with my little ones each night! What a beautiful habit to get your little ones into.

Bedtime Prayers Adults Read to 3-5 Year Olds  Dec 17, 2013
Title: Bedtime Prayers That End With a Hug
Author: Stephen Elkins
Illustrator: Ruth Zeglin
Publisher: Tyndale Kids
ISBN: 978-1-4143-8354-5

“Best of all, as a parent or caregiver, you are encouraged to help grow this habit of prayer by showing your love and affection in the form of a hug after each bedtime prayer! In this way, your child will learn the importance of regular evening prayer and also be encouraged by your embrace,” Stephen Elkins writes in his children’s book, "Bedtime Prayers That End With a Hug."

Part of the “Share-a-Hug!” series, this square padded hardbound book is one hundred and sixty-eight pages and targeted toward children ages three to five years old. Meant as a book to be read at bedtime by an adult to a young one, it promotes praying to God and showing love by hugging. Using mainly the New Living Translation of the Bible, other versions referenced are NIV, NKJV, ESV, NLV, NIrV, and NCV. Illustrator Zeglin’s designs are cute, colorful, and easy to understand.

Divided into fifty-two topics each covering three pages, the chapters have a short Bible verse inside a heart at the top of the title page with a full color drawing and sometimes a short saying. There is a “snuggle time” paragraph about a current event or subject, followed by a Bible thought, a prayer, and nighty-night space. There are “hug time” instructions to give a hug, to whom, and why.

Some topics included are prayers of God’s love and grace while others discuss being happy or joyful, having a good attitude, being kind, and sharing. More teachable subjects are about patience, being scared or afraid, obeying parents, changing bad habits, or apologizing.

One example is a prayer called “Rule Over Rover” about pets which lists a Bible verse from Genesis and says to be kind to little fury friends. The “snuggle time” mentions a short story about a puppy named Rover. The thought from the Bible says God created all animals so we should take good care of them and the prayer is asking God to help us love His creation. The hug is to give the one who “rules over” their pet with love a great big hug.

With the main goal promoting a daily prayer life in a young child, the adult reader may see God in a new light by quick remembrances to love and install hugging. However, children may or may not understand some of the topics based on their maturity and comprehension level.

This book was furnished by Tyndale House Publishers, Inc. in lieu of a review based on the reader’s honest opinion.
