Remember once upon a time when you were able to catch sweet z's every night, and evenings meant warm tea under a fleece blanket? That may seem like a far-off dream today, but even with little ones, nighttime routines can be less hectic and a primer for a restful night of sleep.
These serene read-alouds not only establish a nighttime routine for your children, cuing them that it's time to doze off, but are also designed to lull them off to sleep with rhythmic prose and dreamy visuals. As a bonus, your child will get a boost to their language and reading skills before bed.
