    Um... I’m a librarian, I’m pretty sure I can help. Lol. What type of books do you like? Pig the Pug is very popular right now at my elementary school and Pig the Elf which even I laugh at when I’m at work. But for bed I would recommend any of the classics like Hidi, Little House On The Prarie, Alice, The Nutcracker, Velveteen Rabbit, Anne of Green Gables, Black Beauty, Madeline, I Need My Monster (not scary,) Pinkalicious series (highly recommend,) Dragons Love Tacos, Where the Wild Things Are, If You Give A Mouse A Cookie, The Book With No Pictures, The Gruffalo, The Great Nirsery Rhyme Disaster, anything by Mercer Mayer.

    My all time favorite book is The Bear Under the Stairs but it might be hard to find as it was published in the 90s, I read the copy I had as a kid to at school a few times a year. The key to story time especially for bedtime is fluency, if a story is read well it will do the trick, trying chapter books might help stretch things out between picture books so you won’t have to search for new things as often. Some of the books I recommended are a little silly but sometimes you need that before bed to go to sleep happy.

    Happy reading!

    YOU CALL YOUR DADDY PAPA TOO?!  I don't think I've seen any other littles who call their caregiver papa.  Mine is papa.  He reads to me sometimes.

    I really like The Snow Queen fairy tale...and all kinds of fairy tales, to be honest.  I found a website at one point with fairy tales.  If you'd like, I could get you the link to it.  They're all just written out kinda like a blog post, so you can read them.

    YES! I never see anyone else call their caregivers papa, we like it because it's much more affectionate for us!! Omg, please link! We've been using storyberries and then there's always bedtimeshortstories so I can listen when he's not around

    The rainbow fish, Arnie the doughnut, the birthday monsters, and the hungry caterpillar are some of my all time favorites!
    I love cats!

    The Velveteen Rabbit is a story I cherish with all my heart.


    The world is still beautiful because of people like you.

    I like skippy Jon jones! He's so funny- he's a Siamese kitten that thinks he's really a chihuahua.

    I liked reading long stories with my Daddy so I could snuggle up and use my imagination- we read all the Chronicles of Narnia books- that was really fun - I love those books
