Book Review: God Bless You and Good Night Touch and Feel by Hannah Hall & Steve Whitlow

I like this book because it is written for toddlers in mind and so the message about religion is phrased in age-appropriate language. The book does not attempt to drive the complex message of the Bible into the mind of children, but rather presents a simple adoption of religion as part of the good night routine. The toddler can feel how different the animals are based on the different furs and skins included in the touch aspect, but also sees that despite differences animals of various types have a lot in common. This presents the important lessons to look for things that we share rather than focus on differences and items that set us apart. The book is sturdy, has short text to the point of the story and the drawings are cute.

I recommend this book as a first story time book for kids and later on, since this book is sturdy enough to last a few years, can be used as a book that the toddler can read on their own. It is fun and the illustrations of the animals are adorable.
