My boys are now (nearly) 7 and 9 and the nightly ritual of reading bedtime stories has pretty much gone out the window!
They either read their own books, or push the bed time limit so far that it’s an immediate ‘lights out’ as soon as their heads touch the pillow.
The other day I got to thinking that I really should continue to embrace reading stories to them while they are young enough to enjoy it, particularly for my younger one. I decided to find a decent sized story book that we’d all enjoy reading over a month or two. One that I could read a couple of chapters from each night. A story that was nice to listen to before falling asleep (rather than Boy Versus Beast as the boys would choose). This is what I came up with…
It’s such a joy to be reading Enid Blyton again after all these years. Next I’m hoping to get the box set of Secret Seven that I saw at Big W the other day.
What’s your favorite bedtime story?
