One of my very favorite family traditions is reading. It seems like that is silly to even mention, but in today’s world of technology and distractions at every turn, I fear reading with our children is in danger of becoming a lost art. I admit that even in our family there are times when I forget to sit down and ask the kids to come over to listen to a good story. As they get older it only becomes more difficult to set aside that time. But in our home we love a good story. One that draws you in not only with it’s compelling storyline, but also with it’s beautiful illustrations.
As soon as I cracked the cover open of Good Night Tales I knew that it was going to be one of those treasures. Not only does Good Night Tales have a beautiful look, it takes you on beautiful adventures full of depth and meaning.
The book contains twelve different tales that are meant to correlate with a parable or story from the Bible. In the back of the book there are questions to bring out the meaning of each story, which I would highly recommend going through with your child the first time reading through the stories. I love how unique the stories are but my very favorite are the illustrations. There is something so heart-warming and captivating about the pictures that guide you along in the story. So much so, that at times, words are not even needed.
Good Night Tales would make a beautiful addition to any home. I feel as though these types of books are hard to come by. You don’t find them often and when you do, you know that you have a treasure on your hands, one you don’t mind leaving out on the coffee table for all to see.
From the publisher:
Good Night Tales leads your children through a vivid, beautiful, and imaginative adventure through Scriptural truths. This collection of Scripture-based stories brings a forest to life through animal kings, trolls, plum-loving giants, and fiddle-playing crickets. Stories include reimaginings of Israel asking for a new king, parables about searching for the kingdom of God, and Psalm 23. (NavPress)
