Bedtime Stories For Kids

Some kids love to hear stories, it fuels their imagination and creativity… it helps them create stories and adventures for their toys too. I personally loved reading the Mr Men and Little Miss books when I was younger, I even have the collection boxes. Are your kids the same? Do they love listening to stories, especially at bedtime or they will refuse to go to sleep? But the problem is that you’ve run out of stories to tell them and reading over the same books every night is hit with the response: “But Dad, we’ve already heard this one!”… We can help you out! We’ve gathered new and exciting bedtime stories for kids!

1. Lost Toy

About a boy who lost his toy. That’s happened to every child, right? Where is it? Is it on the bus, on the floor, in someone’s bag? Journey with him and his toy giraffe to see if they’re reunited!
Why is this different, you ask? Because it’s a wordless book. I know what you’re thinking…how can you possibly read a wordless book? Well, that’s the best thing about it, because your children can use their imagination to fuel the story and create dialogue instead. It could change the tone of the book entirely! You can even end up laughing!
