Bedtime Stories For Kids


Children’s books are a great way to introduce your child to the world of literature. Reading books to your children at bedtime is a wonderful way for you and your child to bond, and helps them establish healthy reading habits from a young age. Reading stories is also a great way for children to learn about the world around them.


Bedtime stories can help improve a child’s literacy, listening and communication skills and can also help develop their imagination and creativity.


Reading can help kids develop a love of language, which is essential for learning in school and beyond. According to the National Education Association, reading aloud with children is “the single most important activity for building knowledge required for success in school” and “the best thing we can do to improve education.”


What's more, reading has a number of other cognitive benefits as well. For example, it helps expand your child's vocabulary, which will make them better able to express themselves and understand the world around them. It also helps them learn about different cultures and people from different backgrounds, which makes them better equipped to live in our increasingly diverse society.


Reading has been shown to have an impact on kids' academic achievement as well. In fact, there's even a connection between childhood reading habits and salary later on in life!


Below are some of our favorite books for kids:


1.The Little Engine That Could


When you are looking for a book to read your kid at bedtime, you should read them the book The Little Engine That Could. It is a book that has been passed down from generation to generation and will continue to teach children the lessons of perseverance and hard work.


The story takes place in the countryside with a train that has broken down. No one wants to pull the train up the hill, except for one little engine who believed that she could if she tried. This is a great lesson for children to learn because it shows them that anything is possible if they put their mind to it. They can accomplish anything that they set their minds on doing.


2.The Little Mermaid


It's amazing how many kids' books are surprisingly scary. Just take, for example, the Little Mermaid. The original tale by Hans Christian Andersen has some pretty dark imagery. The mermaid gets legs, and she's in excruciating pain whenever she walks as her new feet feel as if they are being cut with knives. That's not to mention the part where the Little Mermaid's true love ends up marrying someone else — just before he dies. Oh, and then the Little Mermaid drowns herself.


Now that is a bedtime story you don't want to read to your child! Luckily, Disney changed the ending of their 1989 animated adaptation, but let's face it: The Little Mermaid is still a pretty terrifying tale.


However, there is one good reason why you should read your kid the book The Little Mermaid for bedtime: It will help prepare them for any future heartbreak they will experience in life.


Sometimes bad things happen to good people and you don't get what you want or deserve (like when Ariel fell in love with Eric). This is an important lesson for kids to learn early on because it will make them more resilient in life, says Jason Hartman in his blog post “Life Lessons from Disney's The Little Mermaid.”


  1. Treasure Island


Treasure Island by Robert Louis Stevenson is one of the most famous books in the world, and it’s a blast to read aloud no matter how old you are. The action starts from page 1, and once your kid gets sucked into the story, he won’t want to stop.


The story is about a young boy named Jim Hawkins who finds a map for buried treasure. He and his mother run an inn, and when a strange sailor named Billy Bones comes and stays with them, things get crazy. Bones keeps a chest full of gold coins and other pirate booty locked away in his room. One night he has a heart attack after drinking too much rum and dies, but not before giving Jim the key to his chest.


Inside the chest is a map that leads to an island full of treasure, but when Jim shows it to two men at the inn, they get excited and steal it. Jim sneaks aboard their ship along with his mother and the cook, whose name is Long John Silver because he only has one leg. Long John Silver turns out to be an evil pirate who wants to find the treasure himself, so he tries to prevent Jim from getting there first.
