We have a firmly entrenched bedtime routine. You’ve heard of high 5 charts? Ours are more like high 10. Seriously. Pj’s, teeth, hair, bath, stories x2, prayers, water, potty, tuck-in and a song. Just typing all of it makes me tired! Lately we’ve been cutting bedtime short due to time constraints.

For normal nights, Words to Dream On is an addition to other stories. On short nights, it’s the ONLY story. To review this book, I decided to skip to the New Testament. Easter is coming and I can only read about creation, Noah & Joseph so many times :). I wish I could buy picture from the book. The pictures are gorgeous!

This hardcover book was written by Diane Stortz and illustrated by Diane Le Feyer. This is a gorgeous book! It feels good and sturdy and has a blue ribbon bookmark. Even the introductory and concluding pages are fully illustrated. And they are no ordinary illustrations. They are bright. And colorful. And detailed & artistic. The kids catch me pausing in reading to study the fabulous artwork.

The reading is fabulous, too. Each story (there are 52) has a title followed by where the story can be found in the bible. Next comes Words to Dream On, a bible verse relating to the story. Each story is 2-3 pages long and is told in a storybook way. Ms. Stoltz does a masterful job of being faithful to the language of the story and also casual. And she does it without being irreverent or sounding ridiculous.

…He turned and saw the woman who had been healed.

Oh dear! Was Jesus angry with her? The woman bowed in front of Jesus. “I’m the one, sir,” she said…

There is a short Bedtime Blessing and a Sleepytime Prayer that works perfectly as a transition from story time to prayer time. Words to Dream On is my favorite bedtime resource that I have reviewed and it will be staying on our tv room table for bedtime for the foreseeable future.

    I remember my mom having devotion time from a book and prayer time with my sister and I. We shared a room and took turns listening on each others bed.

    I wish my parents would have told me I was smart and pretty and they loved me. I was not told such things very often…if ever. I wish they would not have said bad words and put those things in my head. Thankfully, I didn’t keep any of those habits as an adult. I now tell my kids as often as I can how wonderful they are and that they are treasures to me.

    While my parents may have said many other things that I can’t remember, I tell my 18-month-old, “Mama and Daddy love you, but Jesus loves you the most!”

    I don’t remember much as a kid as far as words my parents would say over me. We would do prayer together as a family though.

    Oh that looks like just the book for this exhausted mama at bedtime with soon to be 5 littles . Pity I don’t live in the U.S. but it will go on my Christmas wish list for my kids, those illustrations are beautiful.
