The number one way to start getting your baby to sleep through the night is to establish a healthy bedtime routine. Bedtime Stories have been part of nighttime routines for generations. In no particular order, Here's our list of the best Bedtime Books for Baby
1. Snuggle puppy by Sandra Boynton
A great big hug in book form, Snuggle Puppy is a year-round valentine from parent to child. It is bright, chunky, a pleasure to hold, and has a die-cut cover that reveals a glimpse of the joy inside before it's even opened.
2. Good Night Moon by Margaret Wise Brown
In a great green room, tucked away in bed, is a little bunny. "Goodnight room, goodnight moon." And to all the familiar things in the softly lit room — to the picture of the three little bears sitting on chairs, to the clocks and his socks, to the mittens and the kittens, to everything one by one — the little bunny says goodnight.
3. Mommy's Best Kisses by Margaret Anastas
As youngsters beg to be kissed, the mommies in this book are happy to oblige with kisses in all the right places. A loving rhyme and tender full-color illustrations of animal mothers and their babies demonstrate the best way to say I love you.
4. Pajama Time by Sandra Boynton
A jump-roping chicken and a pig on a swing. A Scottie in plaid pajamas and an elephant in a fuzzy one-piece with feet. And in sing-along nuttiness reminiscent of Barnyard Dance!, it's time to head to bed-to the beat: Pajammy to the left. Pajammy to the right. Jamma jamma jamma jamma P!J!
5. It's Time to Sleep My Love by Nancy Tillman & Eric Metaxas
As children prepare for bed, the world around them is also settling down for the night. Animals who live in the jungle, the forest, the sea—all whisper to their babies a soft refrain: It’s time to sleep, my love.
