“No fears or worries since it’s true, God is watching over you,” states P.J. Lyons’s children’s book, God is Watching Over You.
~ What ~
This padded sixteen-page board book targets children four to eight years old and can be read as a bedtime story. Containing no scary scenes, its theme is about a baby sheep having a long day and going peacefully to sleep. No Bible verses are referenced.
In this rhyming short tale, a ram and ewe are taking their baby lamb home from a day at the park. As they walk over a bridge, the sun is setting, and the tree branches are swaying. After a nice warm bubble bath, the baby is read a book and prayers are said. Both sheep parents kiss the animal goodnight and remind him that God is watching over as he drifts off to sleep.
~ Why ~
This is a cute, calming story with cuddly sheep and small little animals such as mice, frogs, turtles, birds, sea animals, and a teddy bear to view as the story is being read to a young child. I like that the pictures are calming yet engaging.
~ Why Not ~
With the book focusing on God watching over a young one all day long, it would be nice to include a short Bible verse to memorize.
~ Who ~
The author of four children’s books, Lyons lives in Michigan.
~ Wish ~
Page numbers would be helpful for some readers learning their numbers.
~ Want ~
If you like a story of a cute little lamb and his teddy bear who are reminded God is always there, this would be a good choice.
