short bedtime stories for kids

Bedtime stories also teach your child in ways that are similar to fables, myths, and fairy tales. Reading bedtime stories is a compelling way of helping your child grow into a well-shaped individual. The fun part about bedtime stories is that you can make one up yourself and craft it into something unique and special. A special story goes a long way for a child with open ears, and you will become a source of great interest for your children.
Telling bedtime stories is beneficial. Your child will find sleep coming in a peaceful way with a great story in their ears. It engages their imagination while giving them good dream material, and has been shown to calm down a busy child. Children do tend to be worked up at times, especially at night, and a nice story will put their fears to rest and allow them much-needed relaxation. You can make a story that shows them that the monster under their bed is not so bad, or that the shadows on their wall are their friends. The possibilities are endless with creative solutions to any nighttime issue.
