Very Veggie Bedtime Prayers from WorthyKids/Ideals Publishing [Review & Giveaway]

My thoughts: This lightly padded board book is so cute with the loveable Veggie characters. Their enduring charm brings a love for veggies (some kids don't like veggies but maybe cute veggies will entice them) with the joyful reading of these sweet prayers.

Ending the day with prayer for the blessings of the day and for the keeping during the night is a favorite to tuck a child into bed. Their mind and heart are filled with gentle love for the Lord when they put their trust in Him and pray to Him.

On some pages there is a little printed "tab" with a short verse of Scripture that directs the thoughts to God's promises (verses from NLT):
"For each day he carries us in his arms" Psalm 68:19
"In peace I will lie down and sleep." Psalm 4:8
"I will not be afraid, for you are close beside me." Psalm 23: 4
"God gives rest to His loved ones." Psalm 127:2

This is a sturdy book suited for little hands and lots of handling and carrying about. The thoughts and insights are also suitable for children beyond the young toddler age. So a lot of reading and loving can be found in this little book.  While the verses are not on a par with the classic children's prayers that have been handed down through the generations, they are good and can strongly impact the young child positively.

About the book: In this book, familiar VeggieTales characters accompany rhyming, kid-friendly prayers. Little ones will learn how to talk to God and will be reassured that God cares for them day and night. (Padded board book; ages 2 to 5)

    My son had bob anad larry stuffed animals he took everywhere with him once we went camping and my son snuck off i went to find him he was in someone elses camper! they brought him to me he was carrying a real cucumber they said I dont know why but he really likes this cucumber and named it Larry so we let him have it LOL

  6. My favorite would have had to have been Larry the Cucumber. He was the clumsy hero, just like I see myself.

  7. As for the stories and such, I have so many favorites. It's difficult to pick just one. I do particularly like all of the Silly Songs with Larry. The SUV song is one of (if not the) best!
    And, I really like Larry's character.
    Additionally, my younger daughter (who's 15 and has "grown up" watching VeggieTales) recently told me that my laugh sounds like Bob's. lol
