Book Review: Words to Dream On

Words to Dream On
Bedtime Bible Stories and Prayers
By Diane Stortz
I completely forgot that we were getting this book to review until it showed up on my doorstep this afternoon. It was a nice surprise when we opened box and saw this book. At first sight it is an absolutely gorgeous book and when you open it up the illustrations are absolutely gorgeous and definitely kept both mine and my son's attention. He absolutely loves bedtime because he gets to read his Bible stories with his daddy and is excited to have another one to add to their little library. This book is just stories and does not cover everything that a Bible would so keep that in mind. It is split up by old and new testament. Each story begins with the chapter and verses that the story is being told from. There is a Bible verse to accompany the story and then the story is told and it is ended with a bedtime blessing. The stories are not long maybe 2-3 pages depending on the story and the bedtime blessings are super short usually no more than a line and super easy for the little ones to read and remember. I would definitely recommend this book to others and we will definitely be keeping it and I know my boys will truly enjoy adding it to their collection.

Review Clean Slate

Clean Slate

I am not entirely sure what I was expecting when I choose this book for review but it hasn't really met my expectations. It is a great cookbook for those who are starting to eat better but a lot of the recipes are ones you would expect. The book is excellent overall and the pictures are stunning but you wouldn't expect anything less from the editors of Martha Stewart Living. I will admit its not one of my favorite cookbooks or one that I will probably grab in the future. If you are a fan of anything with Martha Stewart then this book would be one for you but for me I'll stick to my tried and true.
