When it comes to Blake's bed room he spends a lot of time in their, Laughing, playing and of course sleeping. He also has a lot of toys and books and so we try and make the room quiet and relaxed for bedtime. He currently sleeps in a single bed and in the future we may consider getting him a mid sleeper to maximise space.
One of the big things when it comes to bedtime is a good routine and our favourite part is to read him a book. Blake owns a lot of books however we have a good few books which we tend to read at bedtime.
So here are 7 current favourite bedtime reads:
The Tiger who came to tea
This is such a classic and book the 3 of us all love. This story is of Sophie and her extraordinary tea time guest. The story has been loved by millions of children since it was published 50 years ago.
Mog the forgetful cat
Another classic and a story of everyone's favourite family cat Mog. Mog always seems to be in trouble. She forgets that she has a cat flap and she forgets that she has already eaten her supper. But, one night, Mog’s forgetfulness comes in very handy…
One night in the zoo
"One moonlit, magical night in the zoo, An elephant jumped in the air and flew.But nobody knew." like the above two books this one is also by Judith Kerr and an another great bed time read.
