Bedtime Books to Read This Fall


Bedtime Books to Read This Fall

Bedtime reading is such a special time for children and parents. Teeth are brushed, pajamas are on, and the day seems to have finally slowed down. Most kids love reading a story before bedtime…and did you know that reading aloud to children promotes their language development? We know that a lot of kids tend to request the same storybook over and over…and over. So we put together a list of fall-themed children’s books for your family to enjoy this fall! Pick a few up at the library this weekend, and let your child pick a new one to read each night.
