Night Night Devotions by Amy Parker - OPTIONAL

Night Night Devotions by Amy Parker, illustrated by Virginia Allyn. PICTURE BOOK. Tommy Nelson (Thomas Nelson Publishers), 2019. $17. 9781400208906



This christian devotional book includes a scripture, a devotional about that scripture’s message, an illustration, a prayer, and a question. Each two page spread has these five elements. The devotionals are usually related to being loved, being kind, trusting God, and enjoying life. 

This may be a good experience for parents and young children, but many of the devotionals are overly simple and reductive.  The ritual of reading one passage a day appeals to me in that it builds regular reading for parents and kids to share, but the christian message may be better provided by a public library rather than a school library.
