Bedtime Books Giveaway

I told you that my grandbabes were here this last weekend.  Yeah, remember with me ending up with a fat lip!   Still ouches...but that must be the price of a really good hug.  It is now getting to the tender bruising part.  I am pretty sure the part that was busted open is healing though.  But with it as it is now.....kissing is out of the question.  Dear Hubby is being quite tender with me and going for the cheek.  Thank You Sir!
I was also reading to the grandbabes for bedtime this last weekend.  We had a trio of books to work our way through.  Of course you know that one book never does it so you have to have a lil stockpile.  And since we were reading to a 2 year old and a 6 year old then we needed books that went for both pretty well.  The interactive book of 'Tuck Me In!' was a great start.  First it was able to catch the attention of my young one so he would stay in bed with us.  Not up and down all the time.  Second it had a zebra on the cover which did it for the oldest.  This has become her latest favorite animal.  A simple lil tale of how each animal is ready for bed and needs to be tucked in.  You turn the next 1/2 page and it becomes the covers for the bed.  Cute and simple.  Perfect to start off with. Of course best that it ends up asking if the child itself needs to be tucked in.  So we are now all safe and snuggled in our beds.  See the end of this blog for a giveaway of this gem of a bedtime story.
Then on to a a bigger book of 'Moon Dreams'.  A wonderful illustrated story of where does the moon go when it is daytime.  Enjoying a bit of fantasy and a lil talk of where is the moon tonight.  Then we went on to explore why we do not see it in the daytime.  Of course in the book there is an array of fun ideas.  We did not dwell into the real science of it but into the fun imagination of the question.  My granddaughter really enjoyed helping think up ideas of where is the moon.
We ended with a well planned and thought out book of first bedtime poems.  "Switching on the Moon' is a nice size, bright illustrated and numerous poems to read in that lyrical fashion to lull a child to sleep.  Now this is a large book complete with an index of all the poems.  I love that I will be using this book for many years to come with all of my grandbabes, present and ones to come.  It is also a lil heavy so be ready to have a knee to help prop it up.  But it is perfect to help get that quiet tone to lull your sweet angels off to la-la land.  It worked like a dream for me.
So do you have favorite bedtime stories for you kids?  What was your favorite ones when you was small?   My first favorite is the all time good girl, Cinderella.  Later I was totally hooked on a twisted book of Outerspace Nursery Rhymes that came out of the 60's.  There is the ever popular Good Night Moon and the one I always cry to....I'll Love You Forever.  Well here is your fun chance to win 'Tuck Me In'.  Easy Peasy, just leave me a comment for the question I posed.  What is your or your childs favorite bedtime story.  I will draw a name in two weeks and you will have a new book to read to them.  Or better yet, for them to read to YOU!  Don't forget to leave your email so I can find you

  1. Hey Kiddo! Sorry to hear about your lip!
    What cute little books!

    As for the Lord's Prayer, my preacher used that as part of a message the other night. I thought it was so interesting because I was one of those people who would recite it, but not really think about what I was saying, what it truly meant, so I began to wonder if anyone else felt that way.
    God Bless,
