Bedtime stories are a lovely way to end the day. You can spend some quality time with your children, and share in the joy of a good adventure together. You can get creative with bringing the characters to life, and watch your little ones gradually become cozy and sleepy.
Winnie the Pooh, A.A. Milne
An absolute classic, and for good reason. The characters in these stories are well-loved by all and the adventures they share together are exciting and comforting at the same time. There are some subtle but heartwarming lessons that kids will easily pick up too, about friendship and relationships.
Where the Wild Things Are, Maurice Sendak
Another story with some great messages in. This one is illustrated by the author and will transport you all to an entirely different world. The imagination and creativity in this book will mean you and your kids will reach for it again and again.
The Very Hungry Caterpillar, Eric Carle
This one is a lot of fun to read and also has some lovely illustrations. As well as a fun tale, there’s an educative nature to this story too, as kids will learn the magic behind butterfly transformations.
