I don’t know about your family, but around here, there is no faster path to a terrible day than not everyone getting adequate shut-eye the night before. And if just one of us is cranky, everyone ends up cranky. Bad news.
Of course, a great night’s sleep is a complicated thing; you have to have the right prep before bed, the right stuff in bed, and–for so many kids–the right bedtime story.
The Goodnight Book for Moms and Little Ones
is a little cornucopia of Everything Optimal For Bedtime. For kids,
yes, there’s an array of suitable bedtime stories pulling from classics
ranging from Charlotte’s Web to Shakespeare, plus poems, and even
songs, all accompanied by visually stunning vintage art. But for
parents, there’s also tips on readying to your children at bedtime, recipes
for great bedtime snacks, and even activities designed to make bedtime a
little easier all around.
This bedtime book may be my new favorite baby gift.
It’s a little bit of everything, all wrapped up in the promise of
soothing slumber for everyone. -Mir
