Pin It Now!

God Bless You & Good Night (Touch and Feel)
Written by Hannah C. Hall
Illustrated by Steve Whitlow


Cute and cuddly animal families prepare for bedtime. Parents help their little ones feel safe and loved as they go about their nighttime routines.

About the Book

This beautiful, touch-and-feel board book opens and closes with a simple statement, "God bless you and good night."  

Tucked in between, animals are doing all the things that kids do to get ready for bed: eating a quick snack, taking a bath, putting on pajamas, reading books, saying prayers, and snuggling with loved ones.

Kids will love hearing the rhythm and rhyme of playful words and touching the different surfaces on each two-page spread. Little fingertips will delight in exploring textures such as soft fur, smooth skin, glittery snow, and rough sand.

Best of all, the bedtime story will help children to remember to thank God for the day.

My Thoughts

So simple. So sweet. God Bless You & Good Night is my favorite kind of book to read to little ones. I absolutely love the illustration style. I like the adorable-looking animals and soft, rich hues of the animals' environments. Very endearing.

Text is easy and fun to read. I love rhyme when it's done well! The story isn't too short or too long - only 18 pages. Perfect for a quick yet meaningful read. 

I like how a few words or phrases on each page are printed in a different font and color. Words like tummy and yummy and phrases like scrub-a-dub and oh-so-sweet really stand out from the rest of the text. Adds to the playful mood of the story.

In my experience, toddlers seem to love being able to interact with books they read. The touch-and-feel element makes this book an excellent bedtime story choice! 

Book Rating: 5 stars.
