My children love Good Night Tales almost as much as I do. The book contains 12 fairy tale stories meant for reading aloud. C.S. Fritz has managed to capture the feeling of a good fairy tale well told that I've not experienced since my own childhood. He writes for the ear and illustrates for the eye, creating a book I'm already convinced I will have to preserve for my grandkids someday.
Each story is inspired by a passage of Scripture, yet the telling is straight out of a collection of Aesop's Fables or Grimm's fairy tales. At the conclusion of the book are a number of questions for guided discussions that make the link to Scripture that much clearer.
Each story is set in the same world, though each character is unique. My favorite story is probably the first I read to my son, about a buttonbush troll who parts with everything in order to obtain what he finds most precious. The most developed story is probably the first, with allusions to most of biblical history. You and your child will find your own favorite stories you want to hear again and again. Highly recommended.
I received a review copy of this book from the publisher in order to provide my review.
