5-Minute Really True Stories for Bedtime

We rated this book:


Bedtime is a great time to do some quiet reading with little ones. They often want more than one story, and this wonderful book not only gives readers 30 different options, but they are about true things that will fascinate the young (and probably the adults who are reading, too).

Non-fiction isn’t often considered to be bedtime reading, so this makes for a very nice exception. All children are curious, and they all love animals and nature. The stories in this book will not only settle youngsters down for the night but also teach them a lot. There are stories about why we need to sleep, what dreams are, how different animals sleep, beds from all over, what people who work nights do, things about the night sky and all that is found there, and so much more.

The writing is lively and fun, the subject matter is varied and about things kids care about, and each story is just right in terms of length. Every page has wonderful illustrations that support the stories, with plenty of details to keep little ones engaged with the book. This will be a welcome addition to any bedtime book collection.
