Book Review: Goodnight Angels

This children’s book, Goodnight Angels, by Melody Carlson, illustrated by Sophie Allsopp is designed as a board book and it tells a bedtime story.  The illustrations are colorful and have some fun details that help tell the story of a little boy’s bedtime routine.  It follows a little boy around his house while he says goodnight to people and things that surround him.

The story is a prayer to God, thanking Him for the blessings of the day. It is very similar to the book Goodnight Moon. This book is comparable in its size, feel, and cadence to that beloved book.   

The illustrations are very pleasing. They capture a day in the life of a little boy.  It includes images of his family, a playground, a dog, toys, bath time, and being tucked into bed.  It gently steps the reader and listener through a predictable bedtime routine.  It ends with the little boy getting sleepy as he thanks God for his blessings, and says goodnight to the angels who are watching over him.

I received this book free from the publisher through the BookSneeze®.com book review bloggers program. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own.
