  1. What a great list! I click on the link for Mrs. Biddlebox and the prices range is from 27 + to over 100 plus shipping :(

        Thank you so much for this link! I have never heard of it:) We usually just go to the library so i’m not stuck reading the same book every night!

  2. Rebecca Wells says:

    Goodnight, Me by Andrew Daddo. It goes through each body part relaxing for sleep. A little bit of bedtime mindfulness for toddlers and preschoolers. It’s our bedside story each night.

  3. My boys have always loved Dr. Seuss The Sleep Book. I end up yawning as I’m reading it and of course they yawn too. It was a favorite for my brother and I growing up as well.

  4. I bought Mrs. Biddlebox, because of this list. It’s my son’s favorite book to read before bed. The illustrations are beautiful, and the lilt of the rhyme makes it easy and fun to read. Thanks!

    Years ago my toddler had a favorite. I have tried for years to find it again with no luck.
    10 little forest animals are getting sleepy. One by one they go to sleep. I think it was a Little Golden Book. It was the best bed time story for my daughter.

  6. Barbara Majoy says:

    If I Were a Kangaroo is wonderful. My granddaughter memorized it. All the animals snuggle up to sleep. The rhymes are wonderful!

  7. You should add In a Blue Room by Jim Averbeck to your list–it’s magically soothing. Thanks for this round up, there are some we haven’t tried yet ?
