I love reading to my toddler before bed and he is a definite snuggle bug so Snuggle Time Psalms sounded like the perfect bedtime read to us!
Jax really loves animals so he was excited to see the mommy and baby elephants on the cover, beautifully illustrated by Cee Biscoe along with the rest of the book.
Each page has a title, Bible verse from Psalms and then a mini devotion of sorts for the little ones. They are short and sweet to accommodate young attention spans and whimsical to capture their attention.
The page across from it has illustrations of all different kinds of animals from bears to monkeys and everything between!
I like that they are so short individually but you can continue to read if your little one wants more. It gives you the option to dictate the length without cutting off a story midway. There’s nothing worse than leaving kids hanging with an unfinished chapter!
Jax loves Snuggle Time Psalms and I often find him just flipping through it naming the animals like he’s reading! It’s a great educational tool for him Biblically as well as for one learning animals and words!
About the Book
Did you think the book of Psalms was only for adults? Think again! Snuggle Time Psalms, written by Glenys Nellist and illustrated by Cee Biscoe, is the perfect way to introduce little ones to the poetry book of the Bible. This padded cover board book uses simple concepts, rhyming text and adorable art to help children engage with the Psalms. Beginning with “Bedtime Peace” and ending with “Wonderful Me!” this collection of fifteen bedtime poems enables young children to discover the One who holds them in his arms, leads them like a shepherd, created them just as they are, and cherishes them with a love that never ends … snuggle and see!
