Giving your baby a bedtime routine is very important. And a great thing to include is a bedtime book or 4! I wanted to list some of our favorite bedtime books so that you can have them in your nursery too.
Baby Bedtime Books
1. The Going To Bed Book by Sandra Boynton
In this sweet book a group of animals takes you with them through their silly bedtime routine. It’s a quick read and your children will recognize the animals doing a lot of things they do before bed too!
2. Good Night, Gorilla by Peggy Rathmann
Go along for a ride and say good night to all the animals at the zoo. Just don’t think they are going to say good night too.
3. Goodnight Moon by Margaret Wise Brown and Clement Hurd
Everyone knows this classic bedtime book and will recognize saying goodnight to everything in the big green room.
4. Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star by Caroline Jayne Church
The classic lullaby paired with beautiful illustrations for your child to look at and love.
5. The Moon Sees You & Me by Cottage Door Press
A sweet bedtime book about being together, always.
6. I Love You to the Moon and Back by Amelia Hepworth
A sweet rhyme about a beautiful day together with your little one.
7. Papa, Please Get the Moon for Me by Eric Carle
A story about doing anything you can to make the people you love happy.
8. Daddy Hugs by Karen Katz
It’s time for daddy and baby cuddles and snuggles.
These books are great for right before bed. They are sweet and baby will enjoy them. All of them are available in board book style. I prefer board books because they are much more difficult to damage!
