Positives of Bedtime Stories & Incredibundles Giveaway

Today’s post is sponsored by Incredibundles.com. As always, all opinions are my own.

As a self-proclaimed bookworm, I get so giddy being able to share my passion for reading with my little ones. I swear, I have a running countdown to when they’re old enough to read Harry Potter with me!


Today, I want to share with you some positives that we’ve experienced with our boys through our nightly bedtime story time.

1.) Establishes Routine

We thank our lucky stars that both of our boys have been good sleepers. One of the things that helped us in the early months was to create a bedtime routine. We’ve stuck to it since our oldest was just a few weeks old and it’s worked so well for all of us. Most nights after dinner, they both get a bath, changed into fresh jammies, and we read a few books to wind down. After bedtime stories, we say our bedtime prayers, God Bless “______”s, and a few kisses before they go to sleep for the night.


2.) Creates a Special Snuggle Time 

My husband especially loves bedtime stories because there’s nights when he doesn’t get home until close to (or even after) bedtime. It’s a special way for him to spend a little quality time with his two sons. For me, I love the extra snuggles I can squeeze out of them. As you all well know, babies just don’t keep. And I try to tell myself that when I’m reading Little Blue Truck for the fifth night in a row. The quiet time is something I hope to treasure in my memories forever.


3.) Cultivates Creativity & Imagination

Our Threenager doesn’t yet read on his own, but he absolutely loves to “read” to us. He memorized some of his favorites, but he also likes to tell his own versions of books. Even throughout the day, he makes up his own stories and songs. It is such a delight to see his creativity shine through.

    Yes, reading is super important for children. I started reading to mine the second they were born and I’ve raised two pretty good readers! They’re 5 and 7 now but their vocabulary astounds me sometimes.
    What a neat book bundle too. I wish they had this when my kids were younger!

    Totally agree. Reading with kids is about the best thing you can do for them. I recently got some Halloween books in English from Amazon Japan. There is one that sticks out among the bunch. “What’s in the Witches Kitchen?” by Nick Sharrat. My 1 year old wants me to read it over and over. I have read it at least 100 times in the last 5 days! My 3 year old and 5 year old really enjoy it too, even my 7 year old who appreciates the humour and the grossness of some of the things in the witches kitchen.

    I love our bedtime snuggles also! Our routine has changed over the course of a year … but currently we do bath, massage, books, and snuggles before bed. It’s my favorite time of the day 🙂

    That looks like a great way to build a library! We realized that our younger child doesn’t have as many books as big sister did at his age! Reading before bed is great for building relationships. If every child was read to from day one, there wouldn’t be such a huge learning gap in American education.

    LOVE reading every night, even if we do have to read the same book over. and. over. and. over.
    These boxes look so cute, would be a great gift!

    Great post. I love reading and my toddler loves reading as well. We read Thomas the train books before he goes to bed. We are actually working our way through one of his Thomas the train books that has little 5 minute stories in it. Books are great for kids especially if they have speech issues, they can help them talk better.

    My family has long had a tradition of reading. My grandmother read to my mom, who read to me, and now all three of us read to my toddler. It forms such a special bond. Children are more likely to become readers if they have learned to enjoy books.

    Wow, that is brilliant idea! We read all the time with our two year old! She loves it, and it’s a part of our bedtime routine, too! Now…the 1 year old foster daughter that we had? She wouldn’t sit still through two pages of a book! Haha! We kept trying to get her to read with us, and finally just decided we would read the books out loud while she played with something else! Hopefully she will learn to sit still and read eventually!

    You can never have too many great books for bedtime, even if you do have to read the same ones over and over anyway! It is a great time to spend some quality time and wind down from the day.

  10. Melissa

    We incorporated reading in our bed time routine too. It’s such a wonderful way to wind down and end the day, and I hope it will foster a love of reading for my son!

    I used to teach English and work with elementary students with reading skills, so reading is my absolute favorite thing!! Now that I homeschool my children, I am able to share my love for reading with them. We are always going to the library and buying books from thrift stores or the bookstore! Yay for a giveaway! Sharing your post!
