When it comes time to get your kids to bed, it can be difficult… especially if they’re tired of the same book night after night. For a young child, story time is the best time. Luckily, there are plenty of books to choose from.
18. Bedtime For Mommy by Amy Krouse Rosenthal and LeUyen Pham
This book reverses the classic roles of mother, father, and child at bedtime. From another glass of water to five more minutes, it isn’t the child asking to stay up later.
It’s the mommy! She begs her little girl “five more minutes?” and is then told to brush her teeth. Mommy wants another glass of water, and another story, and it goes on.
This book will keep your kid in stitches, but may require a calmer story afterwards.
17. Little Owl’s Night by Divya Srinivasan
Any curious child will enjoy this book. Little Owl wakes up from his sleep and begins to watch his friends. What all could he see in the dark? Well, he sees a lot in the dark. He is an owl, after all. He sees Skunk nibbling, Frog croaking, and Cricket singing. The moon is full and Little Owl wonders what goes on when the sun is up. His mother begins to tell him.
As the sun comes up, Little Owl feels sleepy. A curious child will feel the same kind of curiosity as Little Owl. They’ll certainly enjoy seeing all the things that happen at night, but they may also want to stay up! Be careful with this one.
