Now that school is back in full swing one of my favorite things to do to help my girls wind down from the day is to read a bed time story. My girls are old enough that “Goodnight Moon” is a faraway memory *sniff* but I have come across some lovely bedtime books for your young child that just might make them want to drift away from the little bunny in the bed and find a new favorite.
This little chicken just won’t let dad finish a story, but dad switches things up and eventually both get what they need. Very cute.
Little mouse comes for a sleepover, but bear isn’t so sure about this house guest. Little mouse goes from nuisance to hero in this sweet story of support and understanding.
Moon Dreams: by Ruth Martin Illustrated by Olivier Latyk
This book is beautifully illustrated and endearing with it’s story. Luna loves the moon and wonders where it goes when it leaves the night sky. Can she stay up all night to follow it? I absolutely love the artwork of Olivier Latyk. Beautiful book.
Switching on the Moon: collected by Jane Yolen and Andrew Fusek Peters. Ills. by G. Brain Karas
A wonderful collection of poems about bedtime. Some silly rhymes, some endearing lullaby’s.

Tuck Me In! : by Dean Hacohen & Sherry Scharschmidt
This is such a cute book. It’s “lift-the-flap” action helps you tuck in various animals that need to be all cozy before falling asleep. I would say audience age range would be 0 – 4. Would you like a chance to win a copy of Tuck Me In! for your little one? Here’s what you do…
