This book was written in 1979 and does reflect it's age. To be quite honest, I found it downright quirky. And of course, the photographs reflect the clothes of the time in all their 70's glory. Nonetheless, my son really enjoyed these little devotionals. The subtitle of the book is "Bedtime devotionals for building trust and security in little ones." The themes are mostly about nature and animals and the scriptures are loosely related to the selected theme. Each topic is approximately one page long and accompanied by a single illustration or photograph and a selected Bible verse. As an example, one devotional reading discussed how kangaroos enjoy the safety of the cover of night but that baby kangaroos still need to stick close to their parents. The Bible verse would then be "Children obey your parents..." We do a more lesson-oriented devotional earlier in the day so this was a nice "light" reading for tuck-in time.

It's hard to express the difference each of the devotionals I've listed in my reviews has made in my chlidren's lives. But trust me, they surely have. My oldest often mentions topics that have been covered by one or more of the devotionals and we discuss it again as a family.
