God is Watching Over You by P.J. Lyons {Bedtime Story} Book Review


Those who were reading my blog last summer may remember my review of Thank You, Lord, for Everything. This is a sweet little story from P.J. Lyons that teaches little ones a valuable lesson on being thankful to God for His many blessings. My son still enjoys the book to this day. That's why we were very happy to receive the author's latest children's book release, God is Watching Over You.

As a follow up to their bestselling Thank You, Lord, for Everything, P.J. Lyons and Tim Warnes have created a sweet and relaxing padded cover board book that tells the story of God's constant presence around you. Meant to be read at night, when a child is warm and snug in their bed, the rhyming text and adorable illustrations in God Is Watching Over You gently remind us that God is constantly watching over us, protecting us, and caring for us.

PJ Lyons received a Master’s Degree in Writing for Children at Vermont College and is the author of The Little Lion’s Bible, The Little Lamb’s Bible, and The Wonderful World that God Made. She currently resides in Grand Rapids, Michigan.

God is Watching Over You is a beautiful little board book, perfect to read right before bed. My son really enjoys looking at the precious illustrations by Tim Warnes, which are adorable. With rhyming text throughout, the writing is very reminiscent of Thank you, Lord, for Everything.

This time we follow along a little lamb as he begins to wind down the day and get ready for bedtime. As he goes through his nighttime routine, he stops to appreciate the little things like twinkling stars, a warm bath, and sleepy time prayers. After every activity, the little lamb is reminded that God is watching over him.

A Nice Warm bath to end the day
Washes dirt and cares away
No fears or worries since it's true
God is watching over you.

It's books like this that make snuggle time before bed extra special. God is Watching Over You is a sweet bedtime story that reminds little ones that whether it is day or night, the Lord is always looking after us from above.
