Bedtime Reading
There is no greater ritual than a book before bedtime, (make it more than one) and how about reading a book first thing in the morning too?

Time For Bed

by Mem Fox

Illustrated by Jane Dyer

Red Wagon Books 1997

Ages: Birth to 3

Topic: Bedtime Reading

Mem Fox's delightful good night book will lull your toddler to sleep, even if you have to read it over again and again. The rhyming words sing like a melody and the delightful double spread watercolor illustrations by Jane Dyer, which depict mother animals putting their babies to sleep, are charming.

Prop up the big board book format on a table by the crib and make the pictures accessible to your child as he closes his eyes.
