My top 5 bedtime stories for toddlers
If you set, or just plan to set your bedtime routine, you should consider reading bedtime stories, as a part of it.While I’m preparing for good night story, here are my top 5 bedtime stories:
1. Happy Egg by Routh Krauss
Hoppe, you have enough time before sleeping, as you know, the toddlers ask about hundred questions per minute, about… well about everything. When you read them this great story The Happy Egg by Ruth Krauss, which explains how the little bird comes from an egg, your toddler will ask you a question, after the question and again. 🙂
Note: Be patient and try to answer at his- why, but why….and how?
2. How Do Dinosaurs Say Goodnight by Jane Yolen
Our family favorite is How Do Dinosaurs Say Goodnight. If you hadn’t read it yet, don’t worry, it is equally appropriate for boys and girls. By dinosaurs, Jane shows some good, and some not-so-good bedtime behavior and good night habits. I’m sure that the clever dino-toddlers won’t have any problems with recognizing it. The book contains wonderful rhymes and fantastic illustrations. Night by night, my kids ask me to read it again, or the elder read it for the rest of them.
3. Good Night, Sleep Tight written by Mem Fox and illustrated by Judy Horacek
It is one of Amazon’s best-selling picture books and amusing good night story. The book is about Skinny Doug, babysitter with a secret! He knows how to put his charges to sleep- with familiar rhymes that Ben and Bonny enjoy! Once I had read that this book is the perfect combination of the bedtime story and traditional rhymes, and I firmly believe in it.
4. The Going-To-Bed Book by Sandra Boynton
5. No Matter How Small by Sharon Gibbs
This lovely picture book offers you an easy way to explain to your toddler that being different is O.K. Yes, being different can be hard, but the world’s beauty is in its diversity. Sarah is too small, but one day it would be just the world needs!
I admit that making this list wasn’t easy, pick just five books was harder than I think it would be. So, please, I would like to read about your favorite books. Perhaps, we can make some longer list together, what do you think?
Enjoy in growing up!
