Sweet Bedtime Stories for Babies and Toddlers – Board Books We Love
Have you discovered the Good Night Our World board books for babies? They range from geographical, like Good Night San Francisco to whimsical, like Good Night Baby Dragons. As the title suggests, the books in this series read beautifully as bedtime stories. They provide a wonderful way for children and parents to explore the world – both real and imagined – together.
Owl Babies is one of my all-time favorite books for babies and toddlers. Martin Waddell’s gentle text pairs beautifully with Patrick Benson’s illustrations in a story that captures that bedtime anxiety so many young children struggle with. Use this book to explore these owl themed learning activities during the day.
