A Night Night Prayer was written by Amy Parker and illustrated by Marijan Rmaljak. It was published by Thomas Nelson in 2008.

This board book travels from saying night night to the day with its  flowers and trees; to night night, puppy and Mommy and Daddy; to night night, God. The book is written in a readable rhyme. The repetition of “shh” and “night night” adds a quiet charm to the book’s poetic writing. Bits of humor such as Daddy’s snoring are sprinkled in.

The simple, colorful illustrations done in what looks like pastel chalks, softly blend in with the night time harmony of this book. It’s almost as if God is tucking the child in when its ends with, “Night night, God.”

Carol Green, a graduate of Northwestern, is the mother of three adult children. Her five grandchildren affectionately call her “Grams cracker.” She is the published author of many poems for both adults and children; three coloring books: God Gave Me Five, ABC Fun Book, and Color God’s World Bright; and the picture book: My Mom Loves Me.
