Book Review: ICB Golden Princess Sparkle Bible

The ICB Golden Princess Sparkle Bible is a bright hard covered Bible. The print in the book is just a basic format. There are some really pretty illustrations, but nothing stands out about this Bible. I like the ICB translation, but unfortunately, it's above the reading level for the little girls I was hoping to give this to. I do like that there are little footnotes for additional definitions for some names and provides a little bit of context. However, overall, I was not impressed with this Bible.

Book Review: The Beginner's Bible Bedtime Collection

Adding another to our college of The Beginner's Bibles. The Bedtime Collection is about a quarter of the size of the original, and includes a prayer at the end of each story. The pages are vibrant and glossy. The cover is a padded boardbook type cover. The 20 stories are mostly the same as the original Beginner's Bible. The thing I like about this is the size. It's much better for your small toddler hands. The original is a bit bulky. I think this is a great way to introduce your little ones to quiet times before bed. And let's be honest. Who doesn't like GLOW IN THE DARK?!  This is a great gift for your the little ones in your life!

Book Review: Go to Sleep, Sheep!

If you've ever had to put a toddler to bed, you'll be able to relate 100% to the mama sheep in Go to Sleep, Sheep!  This book made my preschooler and me laugh because it really does sound so much like my little ones when it's bed time!

"But we're not tired!"
"I'm still hungry!"
"I'm thirsty!"

We loved the cute cutout of the book, the adorable illustration and the fun story of basically our bedtime routine! This is a great bedtime book for toddlers and preschoolers. If you have a kiddo who goes to bed without these excuses, you may want to skip this book, so you don't give them any ideas! However, if you do get these excuses, it's a fun bedtime book. I better go put my little sheep to bed now!

Book Review: Dinner for Dinos

If your little one loves dinos as much as mine, they'll love this adorable board book, Dinner For Dinos by Ben Whitehouse. This is a very well made boardbook with padded covers and solid pages. The illustrations are so adorable. I like that it promotes healthy eating and good manners. This is perfect for my little guy. I would recommend this book for all dino loving toddlers and preschoolers. The best part is, it's a super quick read for bedtime!

Book Review: I Prayed For You

I Prayed For You  by Jean Fischer is the prefect book for a mom to be! It'll encourage the mom to be to pray for all the wonderful things to come with her new baby. This book is a nice hard covered book with beautiful illustrations. The book goes through each baby stage and has a little prayer for it.

The book starts off with:
Before you were born, I asked God for something special, I asked Him for you.

"Dear loving Father in heaven above, send a sweet baby for Mama to love."

To first first steps, first soccer game, to first day in school... this will make you tear up as you pray along with your book for your little one. This will be a great reminder for you to pray as a mom. My preschooler loved the pictures as well.

Book Review: Night Night Jungle

We were excited to add the Night Night Jungle by Amy Parker to our Night Night collection! Like all the other Night Night books, this has really adorable illustrations and we loved identifying the jungle animals. I personally loved the sloth! The story itself isn't wonderful, but your preschooler will most likely not mind since the pictures are entertaining enough. As with all the other Night Night books, this has a nice puffy board book cover, and the pages are solid board book material. I would recommend this book for babies and preschoolers.

Book Review: I Can Only Imagine

Since "I Can Only Imagine" is one of my favorite songs, I had to get the I Can Only Imagine: A Friendship with Jesus Now and Forever by Bart Millard of MercyMe. This book is a nice hard covered book. The pages are good quality. The size is perfect for a preschooler. The story is basically talking about all the favorite things the little boy enjoys and asking if God would love them too. It encourages a relationship with Jesus now as well as looking forward to what wonderful things heaven will entail. I love that this book talks about pets in heaven. I would recommend this book for preschoolers and for parents who really like the song!
