The Lovereading4Kids comment

Bedtime rituals are invested with some sparkle as Dot and Dash get ready for bed. Dot is happy with it all but Dash’s not so sure and needs some help to get into it! Dash doesn’t want a bath but Dot shows her how much fun you can have with sparkly bubble bath and when Dash just wants to bounce about and not settle to sleep, Dot shows the delights of quiet reading with a glittering book before both settle down for a tranquil bedtime.


Dot and Dash Go to Bed by Emma Dodd

It's time for bed, but Dot and Dash are both full of mischief. They show each other how to get ready, and soon they are tucked up in bed. But Dot is scared, and doesn't want to turn out the light. Perhaps Dash will be able to help...This is a gentle and reassuring bedtime book - with a different sparkly foil colour on every spread.

I am so pleased to have signed my kids up as they are reading a much wider range of books and even choosing books out of their comfort zone.
