Bedtime stories for kids are the perfect way to help them wind down after a busy day of exploring their surroundings.
Bensons for Beds’ Sleep Expert, Dr Sophie Bostock said: “Reading aloud with children is a great way of helping them to prepare for sleep. Research shows that children with a regular bedtime routine tend to fall asleep faster, have fewer nighttime awakenings, and sleep for longer. As well as developing language and reading skills, bedtime stories can promote concentration, creativity and bonds between children and grown-ups. For adults and children alike, reading can be a great way to relax before you switch out the light.”
