God’s Words to Dream on by author Diane Stortz is a delightful Children’s Bible Storybook. It is designed to be read at nighttime. Children will be captivated by the whimsical, sparkly cover and eager to read the stories inside.
The sturdy book contains 52 Bible stories. Half of the stories are from the Old Testament and the other half from the New Testament in this giving children a good foundation of biblical knowledge. Each one references the bible verse where the story is found, another short scripture called “God’s Words to Dream On”, an easy to understand summary or “Bedtime Blessing” and closes with a “Sleepy-Time Prayer.” Kids will be delighted with the vivid colorful illustrations that accompany the story. Many of the stories are well known but a few might be unfamiliar to some children.
This is a very good book to establish a nighttime bible reading for children. It is made to last. The pages are a sturdy coated hard board. This can take some tossing around and be okay.
I recommend this for young children and preschoolers. The stories are told in a way to capture little one’s attention and the pictures are lovely. This is a great beginning bible story book for bedtime. It would make a nice baby or shower gift. I gladly give it a 5 star rating. Celebrate Lit provided a copy but these are my own words.

More from Diane
A happy bedtime contributes so much to a child’s welfare. Perhaps a warm bath, a story, some cuddles with mom or dad, and a prayer equal a time-tested bedtime routine. These last moments of the day, done right, create a wonderful sense of family security and love for children as they fall asleep.
Bedtime also gives us a wonderful opportunity to help children grow secure in God’s love. I wrote God’s Words to Dream On for just that reason. The stories not only create an overview of the Bible’s big story, but they focus on God’s love and care—the ways He shows us His power and protection and the reasons we can trust Him. Each story includes a simple Bible verse to remember, a simple prayer, and a bedtime blessing for your child.
Young children thrive on routine, and I think a Bible story at bedtime might be one of the best!
