Psalms for Little Hearts is a lovely little book suitable for reading aloud at bedtime or any time of day.  Each of the 25 psalms transformed into verse suitable for young children  are focused on a specific topical message, beginning with Psalm 4 “God Smiles at Me: A Psalm for When You Need Comfort.”  Some of the psalms end each stanza with a phrase that children will likely begin to repeat with the reader, leading to even more enjoyment and reinforcement of the messages about God.

Each psalm begins with an illustrated cover page and ends with an excerpt from the actual psalm.  With the adorable illustrations, short stanzas that are easy to read aloud, and topics that may be chosen for an immediate need, this is a gift-able child friendly introduction to the Psalms.
