Bedtime Stories

Posted on September 19, 2012 at 8:34 AM
Bradley Method® natural childbirth inatructor Krystyna Bowman, AAHCC offers a list of bedtime storiesWe have been getting back into our homeschooling schedule – loving our new curriculum!  I have a minute while everyone is asleep, which fits right into the theme for today – Bedtime Stories!
 
As the holiday seasons approach, I start to purge the house of all the extras.  I finally got to tackle our shelves of children’s books and did some sorting that was long overdue.  As stacks of books surrounded me, a pile of bedtime books we have for our children started growing higher and higher.  I had not realized how many books we have in this genre.
 
The books in the Bedtime Story pile got there because they are centered on the theme of going to bed or end with a sleeping character.  Some of them are repetitive and calming, which is great to settle and relax a child.   Some of them outline the routine, and some of the books are all about bedtime and nighttime adventures.  Since the goal is to get children to sleep, I like to start with one of the action or adventure books to interest and engage our older children, and then finish with a rhyming or repetitive word grouping book to calm everyone down.
 
Along with our book titles, I included books shared on a list of other bedtime stories to explore that was in “Goodnight Giant”.  I hope you find some new treasures on this list to share with your children, or maybe you can use this as a shopping guide for the next baby shower or birthday party you attend.  Some online booksellers offer previews before you buy – great tool for taking a peek at the titles from the comfort of your home!
 
Happy Reading and Sweet Dreams!

I wish to express some thanks to the writer for rescuing me from such a situation. After scouting through the world-wide-web and meeting strategies that were not beneficial, I assumed my life was well over. Being alive devoid of the approaches to the difficulties you have fixed as a result of this write-up is a crucial case, and ones which might have negatively affected my career if I had not come across your web site. The understanding and kindness in controlling the whole thing was very useful. I am not sure what I would have done if I had not come across such a step like this. It's possible to at this point look ahead to my future. Thank you very much for this reliable and results-oriented help. I will not hesitate to endorse your blog post to anybody who should get recommendations about this matter.
