Beautiful bedtime books

Teddy likes to bring me his favourite books. He climbs up into my lap and I read to him.

We look at the lovely illustrations and he points at all the pictures.

Here are some of our current bedtime favourites. They are beautiful books that share a love of life, family and the world around us ?

Kissed by the Moon, by Alison Lester

This is such a sweet book about a mama’s love.

It is about the small sweet things in life, that we hope our little ones will see and appreciate.

And each time Teddy spots a picture of the moon, he says happily, ‘Moon! Moon!’

On the day you were born, by Margaret Wild and Ron Brooks

This is Teddy’s favourite book at the moment. He brings it to me many times through the day. And I can see why he loves it.

It is about the beautiful love a father feels for his new baby, and the wondrous things he wishes to share about this life.

My daddy said, On the day you were born, I wrapped you up warm and took you for a walk to see the world’

Dream Animals: A Bedtime Journey by Emily Winfield Martin

Ruby and I have been reading this sweet whimsical story at bedtime a lot lately.

It is about the beautiful and magic dream journey we take through the night.

The illustrations are gorgeous and transport us to the dream world.

My Mama Earth, by Susan B Katz and Melissa Launay

This beautifully paced story is about the wondrous things Mother Earth does.

‘My mama hangs the moon for me. She puts it low so I can see

The illustrations celebrate the beauty of the natural world.

Our wishlist

I thought I would also share some of the books that are on our wishlist.

The first is You Are Stardust by Elin Kelsey and Soyeon Kin. This book tells of how we are all part of nature. We can’t wait to read it!

The second is The Wonderful Things You Will Be, by Emily Winfield Martin. This story celebrates ‘dreams, acceptance, and love the parents have for their children’. It sounds just lovely.

Stars and moon and sun, now our story is done ?
