In Snuggle Time Psalms, Glenys Nellist and Cee Biscoe bring children and parents on a journey through the Psalms in a fun and engaging way. The thirty page book introduces fifteen different Psalms with topics ranging from finding safety under the wings of God to locating blessings in God’s nature. In doing so, young children get a generous sample of the riches found in the Psalms. The author selects a few verses from each psalm and writes a short poem that helps children relate to the core message of those few verses. For example, in the Psalm 23 chapter, the first few verses are highlighted and an illustration of sheep lying on the field depicts how we can find safety and security in having God as the good Shepherd. The words in the poem are simple enough for 1-3 year olds to enjoy while the pictures are vivid and colourful.
I would be happy to recommend this book to young children especially as parents begin to establish a bedtime routine with them. The Psalms have always been central to the Christian life and the variety of themes will allow children to have early exposure to the beauty and magnificence of our Creator. Moreover, having children grow accustomed to hearing and reading the Psalms at an early age will greatly aid their spiritual growth.
