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.
