ABC for Me: ABC Bedtime: Fall gently to sleep with this nighttime routine, from A to Zzz: Volume 11Erica Harrison
Pairing aspects of a young child's bedtime routine with each letter of the alphabet, ABC Bedtime is a sweet read for both caregiver and child. This book is not only perfect for teaching toddlers their ABCs, but also for encouraging them to acknowledge that its bedtime, get ready, and calm down their bodies and minds before going to bed. The book begins at A with the feeling of being wide awake and active, but after going through the calming A-to-Z bedtime routine, it ends at Z with being sound asleep and catching those ZZZs.
A handy index at the end of the book provides an at-a-glance reference for 26 different things that can be done as a part of a nightly bedtime routine, so this book can be used each night as a reminder for children without having to reread the whole thing. A few of the A-to-Z steps are taken together (saying goodnight, reading a story, tucking in), but many are things children can do on their own after the caregiver has left them for the night (thinking about the fun day ahead, or replaying a happy memory in their mind).
This sweet read with soothing illustrations is sure to please the little ones, and with the consistency and the help of ABC Bedtime, caregivers can reduce the time spent on getting children to bed. A calmer, quicker bedtime makes the whole family happier and healthier.
With endearing illustrations and mindful concepts, the ABC for Me series pairs each letter of the alphabet with words that promote big dreams and healthy living.
