Snuggle Time Prayers, Glenys Nellist, Zonderkidz, 2016.
This little book, written by Glenys Nellist and illustrated by Cee Biscoe, is a cute little book perfect for young children. There are sixteen prayers in this little book, each accompanied by a scripture verse. Each prayer is a rhyming prayer based on the scripture verse provided. Rhyming helps in building vocabulary for early learners. Why not do so with prayers to God?
Biscoe’s illustrations fill two pages each. They are full of color and bright. The animals bring to life the prayer that accompanies the illustration. My daughter at 14-months enjoyed flipping through the book, easy for her to do with the hard, board-like pages. The illustrations are attracting to her. The illustrations can also be used as a teaching tool.
The book is a hardback book, with its board pages and a cushioned cover. As such, it is toddler-friendly. (And in our house, Baby J tested).
I can also see this little book being used in church preschools. Whether in the classroom or in a chapel setting, Snuggle Time Prayers would be an excellent resource.
Whether in the classroom or at home, this little book of rhyming prayers will help children get to know a God who loves them.
