Sweet Dreams Princess: Bedtime Bible Stories, Devotions & Prayers

Sweet Dreams Princess: Bedtime Bible Stories, Devotions, & Prayers, written and illustrated by Sheila Walsh, a well-known Christian singer and author, is over 300 pages and filled with 81 different Bible stories and devotions for girls. The stories are taken directly from the International Children’s Bible. Each story is two pages long. At the end of each story is a devotion, followed by a short prayer, a promise or a praise.

The prayers are intended for encouraging girls to develop the habit of talking with God through prayer at the end of the day. An example: “Lord, please forgive me when I have an unthankful heart. I want you to know that I am THANKFUL for you and your goodness to me!”

The promises are short notes about God’s promises. An example: “God still speaks to his Princesses through the Bible and through our quiet times of PRAYER and praise!”

The praises are little blessings to help girls think about all the blessings in their life and praise God for them. An example: “Dear God, you created the world and all that is in it. Nothing is too difficult for you!”

The artwork starts with the cover. It is bright pink with a jeweled crown (fake jewels set into the cover) sitting on a puffy pink pillow (a piece of stuffed fabric in the shape of a pillow glued onto the cover). The pages alternate in different pastel colors with various borders and stars and flowers sprinkled throughout.

What I Like: Everything.

What I Dislike: Nothing.

Overall Rating: Excellent.

Age Appeal: The publisher suggests 4-8 as the intended age group for this book. Most kids in this age group would need the stories read to them. I think girls as old as 10 would enjoy a Bible story book like this one.

Publisher Info: Thomas Nelson, 2008; ISBN: 1400312973; Hardcover, $16.99.

Special Info: This book would be considered a girls-only book. I don’t think boys would be very interested in reading it.
