One of my biggest achievements when it comes to raising Jenson is his love of books. He always chooses a bedtime story (usually the same one on repeat for a few weeks) and at the end he immediately says “read it again!”.
He’s deep in a Paw Patrol obsession at the moment, so we always have the Netflix episodes on in the background and have one of the stories at bedtime. Pups Save the Party is practically falling apart, we’ve read it that many times, but he seems to be going through an Everest stage at the moment. Fortunately The Works have these super cheap and we’ve picked up another one for Christmas.
Jenson loves going to the library (probably for the toys and fun spaces rather than the books, but still) and we pick up a lot of books with recognisable characters. We actually managed a break from the pups and read this Thomas book for a couple of nights.
Abrams + Chronicle sent me a couple of Christmas books, not that Jenson needs any help getting in the festive spirit. Up first is Decked Out for Christmas* by award-winning author Ethan Long. It’s a really cute story about a group of mice decorating Santa’s sleigh and Jenson loves the illustrations.
Jenson’s favourite of the two, and our current bedtime story, is All Aboard the Christmas Train* by Nichole Mara, Andrew Kolb. It’s a fun fold-out book with five train carriages to explore. We find something new in the pictures every time we read it.
What’s your child’s favourite bedtime story?
