We are celebrating a new book release from the creator of Goodnight Moon thanks to our sponsor HarperCollins and what better way to celebrate a book than by encouraging new parents to read to their baby with a book-themed gift? Make bedtime reading even better with this great new book.
Did you know that one of the greatest predictors of school success is how often a child is read to at home? Did you know it’s never too early to start? And one of the tips I give parents when I speak about literacy is that when you include reading into your bedtime routine you are less likely to push it off until “later” and never get it done. Reading is so important and that is one reason I was excited to put this book-themed gift together with this fabulous new bedtime book from Margaret Wise Brown.
Ready to make a wonderful gift? It’s so easy but it’s also so meaningful.
This never before published bedtime book from beloved author Margaret Wise Brown doesn’t disappoint. Good Day, Good Night, like so many of her other books, is melodic and, has a sense of slowing down near the end as children are settling in and getting sleepy. Together with Loren Longâ€™s gorgeous illustrations, the sweet world of this little bunny comes to life and invites you in. This is the perfect gift for a baby, the book can grow with and be a really special part of their bedtime reading routine. Check out the trailer here!
Now this book is not new, to me, and likely not to you either. Goodnight Moon is a book that many of you probably had read to you. Or maybe like me you know it off by heart because you read it so often to your own baby? Plus the Clement Hurd illustrations are truly classic. But you know what IS new? A padded book edition that just released. It’s perfect for baby hands to grasp!
Here is a picture of my husband and my son ( who is now 11) at bedtime when he was 6 months old reading Goodnight Moon. A lot has changed but that “baby” read two chapter books today while he was home sick from school. He has always been a fantastic reader and it is in large part because of our bedtime reading routine.
Ok so grab these books, and you’ll want something soft and snuggly to cuddle with like a blanket and this Goodnight Moon bunny from Kids Preferred.
Last but not least print out this bookmark. I created it just for this gift and included some of my best tips for reading with your baby.
Print it out ( click here for it) Cut, laminate, and punch a hole at the top. Loop some bakers string or ribbon and voila! You can also print out the fFree Good Day, Good Night Activity booklet here for older kids!
The perfect gift to give with the hope that every baby will get a great start reading with great books while snuggled up with people who love them.
