Shortly after my boys were born, I started reading them bedtime stories.  Some might think that reading a newborn bedtime stories is a waste of time, but that time spent bonding with my sweet babies was always my favorite time of day.  Plus, I am a firm believer that reading bedtime stories helps babies and kids get into a bedtime routine that will help them to sleep better and act better during the day. We have always used bedtime stories as part of our nighttime routine.

Brush, Book, Bed: Bedtime Routine

Scholastic and Orajel™ are teaming up to encourage parents to make reading out loud to their children and brushing their teeth part of their families’ bedtime routines. contains tons of resources to encourage parents to read to their kids, including an ebook The Three Bees, the 100 Best Read Along Books, and articles from Scholastic Parents.

The Three Bees

In The Three Bees, kids learn about the three “B’s” that help a family of Bees get up early to find the best spring flowers.  By using the three “B’s” at bedtime, “Brush,  Book, Bed”, kids can get into healthy routines that will help them sleep better and feel better during the day. This is especially important once kids start school!

Books have always been an important part of my life and I have worked really hard to help my boys to love reading. I love that now that I have older boys, they get involved with reading to their youngest brother as well.  They are always asking if they can read him just one more story before bed.  It is a great bonding time for them as well.
