My First Bedtime Stories by Nicola Baxter


My First Bedtime Stories by Nicola Baxter

The beautifully illustrated tales in this collection are all short and sweet. The cute pictures allow children to help tell each story along with their grown-up helper. There is plenty to laugh about together, and these tales are an ideal way to set kids on the path toward reading. From a naughty new puppy to learning how to play a musical instrument, children will be able to engage with these narratives. Others deal with the first day of school, bathtime fun, bright nightwear, a fairy who helps people sleep, and a mammoth mountain of cuddly toys. The final story in the book is designed to help kids to wind down and relax, ready to enjoy a good night's sleep.

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.

It gives me a chance to read types of books that I would not normally try, and it motivates me to read every night to finish it!
