Bedtime Books






 Story time is special for my grandchildren. Today's post is about some of our favorites.




The Sounds Around Town

Follow a baby throughout the day, listening to all the sounds of life in the city. The colorful spreads are adorned with sound words to try out, and the rhyming text uses repetition for easy learning.
Ages 1 to 7 years
Written By: Maria Carluccio




Sounds Around Town shows a baby lying happily in its cot, with Mom and Dad at the bedroom door. It’s an image that promises safety and security. The whole book delivers this too – the adventures of the urban baby are easy for any toddler to relate to and the artwork makes it easy for them to ‘put themselves in the picture’.  This is where literacy starts: with the opportunity for a small child to read images, safe in the company of a trusted adult who is happy to linger and let the small person in their life take charge of page turning.


Paperback with Story CD $9.99


The Prince's Bedtime

There is a hullabaloo of activity—jugglers juggling, magicians hypnotizing, dancers dancing—but it is the wonder of a good story that finally does the trick. Book with CD editions include story read by actor Jim Broadbent.
