Reading bedtime stories to your child is an excellent way to build a foundation for a lifetime of learning. These stories can be about familiar subjects or favorite characters, or they can be about imaginary worlds. Children also learn new words and phrases when you read to them about the wonders of dreams. And while bedtime stories are great for bonding and helping them fall asleep, they are also extremely important for their language development and literacy skills. So, what are some good choices for bedtime stories?
One of the best ways to make bedtime stories fun for your child is to choose a story that both you and your child can enjoy. If you aren’t enjoying a particular story, try to understand your child’s point of view and find another one. This way, you won’t have to force your child to listen to something they don’t like. There are plenty of funny and silly bedtime stories out there that are sure to keep their attention.
If you are looking for books about bedtime, there are plenty of bestsellers on the market. Some of the most popular books are listed below by the age range for which they are intended. For example, the bestselling book Big Fat Hen is geared towards readers between two and three years old. The vivid illustrations and memorable nursery rhyme narrative help young listeners learn about numbers and counting. Another popular story is Good Night, Gorilla, by A.A. Milne. It features playful illustrations and easy-to-read verses.
Another option is to read bedtime stories in a soothing tone. These stories can help children fall asleep fast and promote mindfulness. They also help your child to fall asleep without worrying about their problems. Dragons, princesses, and dinosaurs can all make children fall asleep peacefully. Some stories even teach them about their own identity and what they can achieve with a little imagination. And besides, they’re also fun for parents as well.
Other classic bedtime stories are the ones that teach children about friendship. For older children, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory is a great choice.

Either way, be sure to commit to reading bedtime stories to your child.
