Book Review: God is Watching Over You by P.J. Lyons Illustrated by Tim Warnes


Bedtime books are my all- time favorite thing to read to Jimmie. Bedtime story time guarantees cuddles. God is Watching Over You by P.J. Lyons Illustrated by Tim Warnes has worked its way into our nighttime routine. It is such a sweet goodnight book reminding children that God is watching over them all day long.

Each page has a lovely illustration of a little lamb. The board book begins with the lamb playing at the park at dusk. The words read like a poem in a rhyming couplet (aabb). Each page ends with, “God is watching over you.” The little lamb is shown walking home after the park, taking a bath, reading a book with dad, saying  prayers, and getting into bed. Each page is bright and colorful with lots of animals that can be pointed out by the reader or the listener.

Jimmie has already fallen in love with this book, and so have I. We sometimes read it during the day, too. He points to it when he wants to read it, or just hands it to me. I try to keep bedtime books for just that, but this one is too cute to not read all day long. Plus, the message can’t be beat. God is Watching Over You would be an adorable addition of any Easter basket.

I was given a copy of this book in exchange for an honest opinion.
