Item description for A Night Night Prayer by Amy Parker & Marijan Ramljak...
Overview Presents a night time prayer for small children, in which the child bids night-night to the sun, the trees, puppies, kittens, and parents, and finally thanks god for all these things and bids him night-night as well.
Shhh, it's time for sleeping, for getting snuggly in my bed. But first, I say my night night prayer and bow my sleepy head. Shh, the puppy's sleeping, a toy under his chin. When he rouses from his sleep, we'll play hide-and-seek again. Night night, puppy.
This lovable little nighttime prayer book has interactive dialogue for a child to repeat as they look around their world to see the sleeping sun, trees, puppy, baby, etc. The repetition within the text and the reassuring message help little ones calm down and prepare to go to sleep.
This bedtime book introduces thanksfulness and prayer in an evening routine. Accompanied by endearing illustrations that depict a cozy bedtime, A Night Night Prayer will quickly become a "read it one more time" book for young children.

great book for bedtime Feb 8, 2010
BUY this book if you have a small child - It's a wonderful part of our bedtime routine.
Lovely book - not just for Christians Sep 1, 2009
This is the last thing we read every night before hugs and kisses. From age 12 months through now (2-1/2). When he was small, he signed the things he saw. As he got more verbal, he'd just say night-night to each thing. Now he practically recites the whole book including the final prayer.
As a non-Christian parent with spouse and extended family who are Christian, this is a very comfortable book to read for our family. It's non-denominational. It teaches respect for the world around us and nature and family.
The illustrations are great...they move from vivid to soothing colors. The rhymes naturally lend themselves to a quiet pace. And the whole thing concludes with a very sweet little prayer that my two year old takes great pride in saying himself: "God, Thank you for the trees, the birds, the sun that shines above. And thank you most of all dear God, for watching us with love. Night night God."
This book is our trigger for bedtime. If we can read through it together and he'll say night night to each page, we know he'll go to bed smoothly. It's been that way since he was 14 months old.
great toddler bedtime book! Aug 7, 2009
We bought this book for our 2 year old and we have to read it several times every night. Highly recommend this book.
Keelan and Kenna's Mom Aug 6, 2009
We received this book as a baptism gift, and it quickly became a family favorite. Both my 18 mo. old and my four-year old love it. It has a wonderful message, delivered with fun rhymes and illustrations that welcome children to use their developing language. Even though it's rated for 4-8 year olds, it's been my daughter's favorite since she was under a year. I highly recommend this book!
Bedtime moments. Jun 4, 2009
To me one of life's precious moments is having my little son wearing his pajamas and sitting on my lap for a bedtime story. This book is written at his level of understanding and the illustrations are awesome. I look forward to many special nights with this book. Great way to bring a little piece of God into a child's heart.
