Book Review & Giveaway: Night of Mysterious Blessings by Sally Metzger

Book Title:  Night of Mysterious Blessings by Sally Metzger
Category:  Children’s Fiction (Ages 5-8), 40 pages
Genre:  Picture Book/Early Reader
Publisher:  Elk Lake Publishing
Release date:   November 3, 2021
Content Rating: G. My book is rated G because it has a Biblical world view. 

Have you ever had great big tingly goosebumps? Or tossed and turned too long on a sleepless night? Have you ever seen tall shadows dance in your doorway? Or found a RELAX-let-go peace deep inside? In Night of Mysterious Blessings, you’ll share in the adventures of a boy and his beloved dog. Enter this curious, oh-so-mysterious night, and be amazed at what you see in the morning’s light. Best of all, uncover the priceless key to worrying less and smiling more.

​So many books stress God is always with us. How fantastic for a book to proclaim the Scriptural truth that God is also within. It’s a lifelong gift for children to discover God makes his home inside them while their hearts are open to receive the mystery.

My Review

I chose to read this book after receiving a free copy from iRead Book Tours. All opinions in this review are my own and completely unbiased.

Night of Mysterious Blessings is a splendid book for children. It’s the story of a boy who can’t sleep, and he gets a visit from the Sandman. He reminds the boy that God is always with him, and he doesn’t need to worry about things or be afraid.

The story is told in verse, and the pictures are amazing! This is my favorite kind of book. It’s fun for children to read, and at the same time, they learn something important. I’m looking forward to reading this one to my grandkids!
