I cannot even begin to tell you how much I love the fact that Zoe is super into books!!! She loves looking at them, holding them, chewing on them. I love it! For only being on this earth for five months, she sure does have quite the collection!!! Can I just tell you though, like adult books, all children books are not created equal! Man, there are some real duds out there. Part of Zoe’s bedtime routine includes reading a few bedtime stories. These are our favorites!
The Going to Bed Book by Sandra Boynton
Shout out to Laura for gifting Zoe this book! This is our absolute favorite. In fact, I have the entire thing memorized and I often recite it to her while she is in the bathtub. The book goes through these cute little animal’s bedtime routine. They scrub. scrub scrub in the tub, put on their pjs, brush their teeth, exercise, turn off the lights, etc.
An Ocean Adventure a Sparkle Board Book
Join Titch on his ocean adventure and meet all kinds of sea creatures. Will he return home in time for bed? Zoe loves all the pictures in this book. This is the first book that she really paid attention too when she was younger.
Little Owl’s Night by Divya
Little Owl meets all kinds of night time friends as he heads home before the sun comes up. The end of the book, his mama describes how the night ends and day begins and I always get goose bumps reading those few lines. The background is black instead of white, so I really think it helps the little kiddos really see the pictures.
On the Night You Were Born by Nancy Tillman
Cue all the tears and emotions on this one! This was one of the very first things I bought Zoe. I stood in the aisle at Target reading this one and crying ugly tears because of how beautiful it truly is! This would make such a great baby shower gift!
Goodnight Moon by Margaret Wise Brown
I feel like this one is a little cliche, but there is a reason! Zoe just loves this book and it is one of the first ones we read every night.
Do you have any favorite bedtime books? I read these ones over and over again to Zoe and we never tire of them! I think that is what makes them such good choices.
