Posted in 5 paws, BEA, Children, Review on May 20, 2016

I loved going to BEA and picking up all these books for my great-niece.  She may be a bit young for some of them, but I know her parents will read the books to her and eventually she will be able to read them herself.  The author, Marianne Richmond, wrote and illustrated this book.  She is not new to the children’s publishing world and has many other books out there that are available now.

This book is due out in January 2017 (may be October 2016 but not 100% sure).  It is available on Amazon for pre-order.

bedtime blessings


Dear God,

It’s the end of the day and time for my prayer to say thanks for your blessings  and heavenly care.

Bedtime Blessings offers a peaceful way to end the day with a special child through this heartfelt prayer of gratitude and wish for God’s blessings on others, too.

Create to help grow a joyful spirit of contentment in even the youngest child, this sweet blessing will guide them into dreamland with a heart full of thanks and love.



I was able to meet the author at BEA and pick up a copy of this book.

This is a great book to read to young children to teach them the meaning of being thankful for all that they have and those around them.  It also is a way for parents to institute nightly prayers with their children, something that seems to have disappeared in many homes.

The graphics are simple but the words can have a powerful impact on impressionable children which is what we would want to create a kinder society for the future.
