Bedtime Routines for Children

parenting

Children's bedtime routines are so important if they want to get a good night's rest. Reading books as a family before bedtime has always been one of my favorites, so I thought I would share a couple books that have been our favorites so far, and maybe you can share some in the comments for other parents. 
1.) Goodnight Moon, by Magaret Wise Brown. This I think is a favorite of many parents. 
2.) How Do Dinosaurs Say Goodnight?, by Jane Yolen & Mark Teague. My now teenage son, loved dinosaurs growing up (what boy doesn't!) and we had the whole series of the "How Do Dinosaurs" books. So if you have a boy in the family, this is a great book.
3.) Dr. Seuss's Sleep Book. What better way to start bedtime than with Dr. Seuss?
4.) The Going to Bed Book, by Sandra Boynton. If you have never heard of Sandra Boynton, her series of books are sing songy and full of fun rhyming, and have been another collection ever present in my house since my now teenager was a little one. 
5.) Llama Llama Red Pajama, by Anna Dewdney. Llama Llama books are another favorite of kids and big kids. 
6.) Goodnight, Goodnight, Construction Site, by Sherri Dusky Rinker. This book may favor to boys, but this is a very good book while getting ready for bedtime.
7.) Goodnight, My Duckling, by Nancy Tafuri. This was actually one of my favorites when I was little and a very good book for cuddle time.
8.) Bedtime for Peppa, by Scholastic Editors. Kids love Peppa Pig and George, so why not read a story with brother and sister pig. 
I hope you enjoyed my list of children's bedtime books. Tonight or any other night, once you have started with your Wink Chest Rub, or Wink Melts or Drops, settle down as a family and try some of these books. And lastly, have fun with your reading adventures!
Love,
Jackie S.
