Bedtime Stories

Bedtime stories are often included in a child's bedtime routine. This shared activity can begin as young as a few months old and can continue well into middle school.  Beyond helping a child wind down and get ready for bed, there are many benefits to this nightly routine.  Research has shown that reading aloud to a child significantly improves their ability to read and write, and strengthens their vocabulary and communication skills.  Also, it is an excellent time for a child to cuddle and bond with their parents.  

Here are some great books to share with your kids.
