Nothing helps put a child to sleep more than a good bedtime routine, and what better activity to include in a bedtime routine than reading your sleepy child a wonderful book before they slip off into dreamland. Here are some of the best bedtime books that all moms should read to their little ones:
1. Goodnight, Moon
What child’s bookshelf is complete without a copy of “Goodnight, Moon,” by Margaret Wise Brown? I remember my mom reading this book to me when I was a kid. It’s definitely one of the most beloved bedtime stories of all time about a rabbit that would rather do anything than go to sleep. In order to put off going to sleep, the rabbit decides to tell everything goodnight. Brown’s clever rhymes and Clement Hurd’s soothing illustrations create a wonderful book that will help relax your child as they say goodnight.
