Teeny Tiny Tales for Toddlers This adorable picture book is really five teeny tales, just the right length for bedtime (or naptime) storytelling. Sarah Hayes’ “Teeny Tiny Tales for Toddlers” is all about the teeny tiny people who live in the garden. They’re not quite fairies, not quite elves, just seriously adorable. The prose has a nice lilting quality that will delight the pint-sized crowd and help lull the sleepies. And it can be yours! Click “comments” and tell us, what’s your family’s bedtime ritual? We’ll draw a winner’s name next week.

Speaking of which, congrats are due to Janna, who won Jan Brett’s “Little Dassies”! And thanks to everyone who entered and shared such great ideas for that next library foray.

    Our bedtime riturals are often way too chaotic! I love nights when we have a snack, brush teeth and then read stories, say prayers and tuck the kids into bed. Wish more nights were like that!

  2. Ellie Says:

    I love books about teeny-tiny people. For older kids, don’t miss “Mistress Masham’s Repose” by T.H. White!

    Our families bedtime ritual is brush teeth, wash hands & face, drink a small glass of water, get into jammies, and read a story. And we always say, “Good Night, Sleep Tight, and Don’t Let the Bedbugs Bite!”

    Our night time family ritual begins with getting dressed for “sleeping time” in pjs & then brushing teeth & settling down in bed with 3 books for “quiet time stories”. I have two daughters that Love this special time of the day with me. Of course after the stories, we share kisses & hugs all around. Sometimes, I will play soft soothing music for them as well.

    About 10 minutes to 8 our daughters get their pjs on and brush their teeth. They hop into bed at 8pm and Daddy reads them a story for about 15 minutes. Both are usually asleep before he finishes reading.

    Most nights, my husband is the bath giver and story reader to our children! First, they have a snack;
    like, cereal and then it is bath time. After a fun
    bubble bath, pajamas are put on and it is story time!
    Their dad then tucks them into bed and I give good night
    kisses. Many thanks, Cindi
