Summary

Bedtime stories are stories told after your child gets into bed for the night. They will often ask you to sit with them.

 This is an easy chance to offer them a story to tell. Kids love this because it is a surprise for them and, at that moment, makes them feel truly important.

Do your kids have a hard time falling asleep?

Consider how this book can help you!

Bedtime stories create a beneficial aspect of the daily bedtime routine!

The stories can also increase their vocabulary, improve their concentration skills, and stimulate and encourage creativity and imagination.

This book contains unique stories written specifically to help your child calm down before bed.

You can either have them listen to a classic story, find a quick one online, or tell it from memory. Often a great story about bedtime is improvised to suit your child's mood at that particular moment.

Typically these stories are the ones that have been told in many different ways for many years. Popular stories include princess and prince stories, great monsters and knights, adventure kids, and thrilling stories with no end to them.

 This latter type of story is interesting, as it allows you to draw the same story over many nights in order to keep your child interested and always want more. It is helpful to tell bedtime stories. Your child will find that sleep with a great story in their ears comes quietly. While giving them good dream material, it engages their imagination and has been shown to calm a busy child.

Children sometimes tend to be worked up, especially at night, and a nice story will put their fears to rest and give them the relaxation they need so much. You may make a story that tells them that the beast under their bed is not so evil, or that their friends are the shadows on their wall. With creative solutions to any night time question, the possibilities are endless.

Here are the original stories inside:

  • A Wise Parrot          
  • The Shoemaker and the Elves 
  • The Butterfly         
  • Little Red Riding Hood   
  • How the Farmer Deceived the Demon         
  • How Iro Met the S'iring
