Getting Kids To Sleep

The Best Bedtime Stories for Your Little One

When it’s time for your kids to go to bed, you will surely hear some protests and complaints. Sometimes they want more TV or computer time but most of the time they just want to spend a few more minutes with you. This is almost always true if they rarely see you because you are always out for work. Bedtime stories are a great way to calm your children and lull them to sleep. It’s also a good bonding activity with your children. Here are the best bedtime stories you can read for your little one. These are full of
colorful characters and beautiful illustrations to captivate your children.

Guess How Much I Love You
This is a classic book that tells the story of Little Nutbrown Hare who wants to tell his dad he loves him in different ways. In the process, he puts off bedtime a bit longer. He gives one way after another while his dad ups the ante. This goes on until his son falls asleep. This story is a great way to encourage your child to say how he feels. This book is by Anita Jeram and Sam McBratney.

Goodnight Moon
Goodnight Moon features a little rabbit who wants to postpone bedtime by greeting every animal, person and even objects within sight a good night. This story will not only help your little one fall asleep, it will also improve his identification skills by finding all the items the little rabbit mentions.
