It's time to stretch from small to tall To see the moon so bright. It lights our way and seems to say, "God bless you and good night."
Was that a little growl I heard? It sounded like your tummy. Let's get a snack then hit the sack. You're needing something yummy!
Who's ready for a bedtime bath? The bubbles reach the sky! I filled the tub, so scrub-a-dub, And watch those bubbles fly!
Now get yourself all dressed for bed. Your jammies make me giggle. You're oh-so-sweet from head to feet— Those flippers really wiggle!
Come climb up here on Mama's lap And read a book with me. I know of one that's lots of fun. Hop over and you'll see!
I'll wrap you safely in my arms And squeeze my snuggle bug. There's nothing more that I adore Than a sleepy bedtime hug.
Let's settle down and settle in And close our eyes to pray. You've wrestled, raced, and run and chased. "God, thank You for this day."
It's time to sing a lullaby. Who, who should choose the song? There's one I love 'bout God above, And you can sing along.
You're ready now to cuddle down. There's one last thing to do. I'll hold you near so you can hear Me whisper, "I love you."

*The boardbook I have is a touch and feel book... This is a delightful little touch and feel book! The illustrations are cute and the writing is a fun to read story to my little ones. The feel me pages are what I would expect the animal or its surroundings to be. The story is a delightful rhyming story that takes readers through several scenes of snugly animals who are getting ready for bed. From putting on pj's, brushing teeth, and saying good-night prayers, it's just a lovely little book. It's sure to be a favorite. I received a complimentary book from BookLook Bloggers, my review is voluntary.
God Bless You and Good Night children’s book is absolutely adorable. It is loaded with colorful pictures that children are sure to love. The story will capture your children’s attention. This is a great story for your little one.
I absolutely fell in love with the first book that I held in my hands written by Hannah C. Hall. It is called Would a Worm Go on a Walk? You can see my review here. God Bless You & Good Night is just as precious. Beautiful rhymes paired with absolutely charming artwork. It is soft… relaxing…. dreamy! Gather up your snuggle bug and enjoy a wonderful way to unwind and relax for a dreamy nights sleep. As a reviewer for FrontGate Media, I received a review copy of this book in exchange for my honest and unbiased review. My thanks to FrontGate Media, the author, and publisher.

With a snuggly parade of adorable animals and flowing rhymes, this book helps drift into the land of dreams. Big, bold illustrations on every two-page spread background a lovely, four-lined poem, which hits upon familiar, bedtime rituals. The illustrations in this book make it a treat for young listeners. They are colorful while maintaining a calming color scheme for tired, little eyes. Each four-line poem is highlighted by a different baby animal and its guardian, making sure that the feeling of love and care radiates off the page. There are familiar animals as well as a bit more unfamiliar ones, guaranteeing that kids will find a favorite. From the Artic to Australia to urban homes, a large variety of habitats is shown. The animals are given a little bit of a human touch (a pair of pants, a teddy bear), but always just a slight hint, while the main part of the illustrations keep a more natural air about them. It's a lovely mixture, which gives young listeners something to smile about while letting them view their favorite creatures in settings they'll recognize. The poem flows smoothly, while adding a tad bit of the unexpected without becoming jaunting. The moments portrayed mirror familiar bedtime rituals and some sillier times like when the stomach suddenly rumbles for food. The wording is easy to understand and holds some cuter phrases like 'snuggle bug'. Of course, the religious thoughts are present but never over power the rest of the poem. Rather, they naturally flow in. It's a sweet read for young animal lovers, and great for a last read before those eyes close for a good night's sleep. I received a complimentary copy from Booklook Bloggers and enjoyed it enough to want to leave my honest thoughts.
More easy rhymes for 2am readings! Part of the God Bless series, I'd previously read and reviewed God Bless My Family. I love this series! Now here's one that any parent or guardian could benefit from. A nighttime book of animals preparing for bed and saying goodnight. Sleepy giraffes, snuggly (yet still hungry) polar bears, and more, these cute animal families prepare for bed from bath time to snack time, to PJs and story time. The illustrations are adorable. Colorful, yet soft and soothing, any kid would love these cute little animals as they snuggle up and prepare to go to sleep. The rhymes and rhythm of the page make it easy to read, even when half awake and praying silently that they'll just fall asleep! For my kids, I've found that routine was extremely helpful (and important) when it was time for bed. They knew to expect one last small snack, then off to take a bath (or shower), dress in PJs, brush their teeth and finally a story before going to sleep. Sometimes it would be a devotional from Jesus is Calling kids devotional series. Then ending the night with a prayer, one last kiss and an "I love you". Not every night is perfect, and sometimes its full of tears and pouts when bedtime approaches. Perhaps this book will soothe that savage beast. Knowing that after their preparations before finally crawling into bed will be met with a special story treat, might get them to move faster...well, move, at least. Hannah Hall has a few others in the series that I haven't read yet, but I imagine the quality is right up there with this one. I highly recommended this book for any toddler or early reader. I received a complimentary copy in exchange for my honest opinion.
