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: 

Night of Mysterious Blessings is a cute children’s book by Sally Metzger. It tells an inspiring story of how to worry less and have more trust in God. I like the Christian theme and it’s teaching the importance to younger children of God’s love. I found it was soothing tale that can help with anxiety and stress of worrying or the fear of what is to come. I think so many little readers will find this book to be a comfort and will bring them peace that they are needing. I like the rhyming verse style that at times will provoke some giggles from time to time. Such a sweet and heartwarming story to read. I loved it.

Night of Mysterious Blessings is beautifully illustrated by the talented artist, Courtney Smith. The pictures follow the story perfectly. They are colorful and eye catching that will hold any young ones attention. 

I am giving Night of Mysterious Blessings a very well deserved five plus stars. I highly recommend it for readers between the ages of five and eight. It would be great to be placed in elementary school libraries and a children’s public library. I am interested in finding more books by Sally Metzger to see what else she has in store for her young readers. 

I received a soft cover copy of Night of Mysterious Blessings from the publisher, but was not required to write a positive review. This review is one hundred percent my own honest opinion.

  1. Amy, your marvelous review of Night of Mysterious Blessings means a lot to me. You are so encouraging! I relish the idea of the book comforting children during these stressful times. Also, I’m glad you touted Courtney Smith’s talent as an illustrator. She did superb work, and I’m forever grateful to her. Thanks, too, for your interest in my other books for children. Jesus, Were You Little? my picture book for children three through six, was just released in September.
