Bedtime Stories

When it comes to reading, encouraging this from a young age comes highly recommended. What better time to do this than bedtime? Even newborn babies will appreciate the soothing sound of voices, and it won’t be long before they start to recognise pictures or shapes.

As they grow, kids’ books evolve to suit all interests, taking children on a new adventure in every story as they snuggle up in bed. Reading for just 10 minutes every evening can boost the crucial development that improves literacy skills and a child’s confidence to read independently or aloud while increasing their vocabulary. We know that every child’s interest in books is different. Whether it’s a love for animals, fantasy, magic or plenty of humour – these bedtime books have been hand-picked so you can continue the love for reading with a new book every night!

Julia Donaldson is one of our favourite authors here at Books2Door, and her stories make perfect bedtime reading.

It’s no wonder that these books get adapted for television nearly every Christmas - they’re a delight for young and old!
