My girls really loved this book.  The pictures are adorable and the devotionals are dated, one for 365 days of the year. That really seemed to keep them wanting to see what each day had to say to them.  I would recommend them for ages 3-6.  

My son loves this one!  With comic book hero's being so popular he was instantly drawn to this devotional.  And, it's written in true comic book form.  Even if we don't read it, he loves to look at the pictures and figure out the bible story for himself.  I would recommend this book for ages 7-12

My kids really liked this one, too.  Each story has a nice picture, some quit time questions from Night-Light (the cute green fire fly), a prayer for kids and what I really love is that it gives a bible word to think about before sleeping.  I would recommend this for ages 3-6 for boys or girls.

I don't have this devotional but everything Max Lucado makes is amazing!  I did some research and the book has no pictures, only daily devotionals to read.  It  is recommended for kids ages  6-12 years old.  There are lots of reviews so you can check out what others are saying about this book by clicking on the picture.

God's Natural Remedies - Essential Oils You Can Use to Help Your Kids Sleep

Use these oils with an air diffuser or by applying a few drops to a cotton ball or tissue that you can tuck into their pillowcase. But, the easiest thing to do is to apply a small amount of oil to one of these spots.  Your child's forehead, temples, chest, back of their neck, or the soles of their feet, these are the best places to apply essential oils.

  • Lavender
  • Jasmine
  • Chamomile
  • Bergamot
  • Rose
  • Clary Sage
  • Neroli
  • Sandalwood
  • Ylang-Ylange
  • Vanilla

Be on the look out for allergic reactions to these oil.  I am only allergic to seasonal pollen but, the most popular oil Lavender breaks out my skin and stuff's up my nose. So, please use oils with caution!  However, I love oils and use them regularly with my kids!

The very popular Peace & Calm oil is a blend of many of the above oils.  It's level of lavender has not bother me but, I only used a dab to put on one of my kids.  It took me a few weeks of using lavender shower gel to figure out that it was causing my skin's reactions.

 I had got it as a gift, as lavender was never a smell I was drawn to.  Even though I had such a minor reaction to it in the past, I had not realize that I was allergic to it, but my body was already telling me that it didn't like Lavender.  

Make sure you let your kids smell the oils before you spend the money on them, some are very expensive.  And, if they tell you they don't like the smell don't force your kids to use it, find an alternative, their are some great options from the list above to try.
