Snuggle Time Psalms, written by Glenys Nellist and illustrated by Cee Biscoe, is the perfect way to introduce little ones to the poetry book of the Bible.

After reading it to one of my sweet grands I can imagine enjoying this book over and over again. It is a nice addition to the bedtime routine. The portions are short and sweet so your toddler can pay attention and then hopefully be tucked nicely into bed.
I would be totally remiss if I didn't mention just how lovely the illustrations by Cee Biscoe are. Lots of soft and cuddly animals in beautiful pastel colors. The pictures truly do compliment the story. I look forward to many nights of reading this book and I think you will too.
I received a copy of this book to facilitate my review. (Posted on 9/21/2016)

There are 15 psalms total in Snuggle Time Psalms. They include the following Psalms: 4, 6, 8, 18, 23, 63, 84, 91, 95, 103, 104, 113, 121, 133, and 139. (To be clear, these are re-tellings of the Psalms, not the Biblical text.) What I especially enjoyed about this book of psalms is that each of them are written in the first person (from the child's point of view). I thought this was unique and a great way to help teach children about the psalms and about how they can talk to God (like the other great book from this author/illustrator duo, Snuggle Time Prayers).
Both Snuggle Time Psalms and Snuggle Time Prayers have both been fast favorites in our house.

“Snuggle Time Psalms” is a children’s picture/board book. It was written by Glenys Nellist, and illustrated by Cee Biscoe.
In this little book, that I would consider a child’s devotional, Glenys has picked out several of the Psalms. She has chosen one verse from each (which she includes) and has written a precious poem for it.
I definitely feel that a tiny tot would enjoy flipping through the pretty pictures (And, because it’s a board book, you won’t have to worry about them tearing it up.) It is written in a way that I would recommend it for young readers and those who love to read stories to children. I believe they will sit, enthralled in the rhymes and rhythm.

Jax really loves animals so he was excited to see the mommy and baby elephants on the cover, beautifully illustrated by Cee Biscoe along with the rest of the book.
Each page has a title, Bible verse from Psalms and then a mini devotion of sorts for the little ones. They are short and sweet to accommodate young attention spans and whimsical to capture their attention.
The page across from it has illustrations of all different kinds of animals from bears to monkeys and everything between!
I like that they are so short individually but you can continue to read if your little one wants more. It gives you the option to dictate the length without cutting off a story midway. There's nothing worse than leaving kids hanging with an unfinished chapter!
Jax loves Snuggle Time Psalms and I often find him just flipping through it naming the animals like he's reading! It's a great educational tool for him Biblically as well as for one learning animals and words! (Posted on 8/8/2016)

My son seems to love rhyming books right now so he kept pointing out the rhyming words. The pictures were colorful and pleasing to us all and the fact that my kids are understanding some of the Psalms is a bonus.
As we continued to read a Psalm or two each night I felt a peace come upon us! It is amazing to think that Godly peace is felt even through a children's version! God is so good! (Posted on 8/1/2016)

Snuggle Time Psalms, is a great little book to read to your little one. They are Psalms that are short and sweet and they give momma or daddy a good excuse to snuggle with that toddler or preschooler that is always on the run.
This book could quickly become a childhood favorite toted around by tiny hands. It even has the sweetest graphics to sum the whole thing up. It includes 15 Psalms in all and the illustrations are just the most precious ones I have seen in awhile.
**Disclosure** This book was sent to me free of charge for my honest review from the author. (Posted on 7/18/2016)
