My Thoughts

We all have our favorite bedtime stories.  Candle Bedtime Bible will be my go to for bedtime stories when reading to my grandchildren.  In my opinion these stories would be a blessing anytime of the day. The stories offer a wonderful way to teach children the stories of the bible, beginning with the creation to Jesus returning to his Father.

I like that there are 3 minute, 5 minute, and 10 minute stories which helps when figuring in the attention span of each children.  I don't consider myself an expert, but hey, I do have fifteen grandchildren  in which attention span is definitely a big factor when picking a story.

Wonderful companion to go with your child's Bible.

I highly recommend this book.

I rate this book a 5 out of 5.

Disclosure: I received a free hardcover book from Kregel Publications for an honest review.  I was in no way compensated for this review it is my honest opinion.
