God Is with Me . . .

God Is with Me through the Night and God Is with Me through the Day are vibrantly colorful picture books that address the abandonment fears of a child by reminding them that God is always near. Julie Cantrell uses adorable images of animals in nature to convey the emotions of a fearful, uncertain child. 

These books are designed for children ages 4-7, but I would have no problem sharing these wonderful pages with a baby or toddler. God Is with Me through the Night would be a wonderful read to scare away nighttime jitters and remind your child of God's promise in Isaiah 41:10. If daytime fears are more prevalent for your child, God Is with Me through the Day will chase their concerns away by referencing Psalm 56:3. 

My children and I truly enjoyed the vivid images of the animals that so perfectly matched each sentence of Julie Cantrell's books. We smiled at the brightness of color and were touched by the message of God's promise that He is always with us. 

 God Is with Me through the Night and God Is with Me through the Day are very similar in tone and message. This might be the only drawback of this product. No pictures are repeated though. Nature and animal lovers might find it worth while to purchase both. The repetition of the message might even help to further cement it into the child's heart. The price of the books is $9.99/ U.S or $10.79 /C.A. This isn't a bad price for a beautiful picture book. 

God is With Me through the Night and 

God Is with Me through the Day are both excellent additions to your little one's library. Your children will delight in the brightness of the pages and the sweetness of the animal world. I'm happy to recommend them.
