Did you know that May is National Share-a-Story Month?
Created by The Federation of Children’s Book Groups, National Share-a-Story Month is a celebration of storytelling that will be celebrated in 2021 with the theme of ‘Myths, Magic and Mayhem’ – find out more at http://fcbg.org.uk/national-share-a-story-month/
Most of us treasure bedtime stories as precious time spent with our young children. A chance to snuggle, switch on the twinkly lights and have soothing, calming time enjoying stories that make lasting bonds and memories with your child.
But, as kids get a bit older and can read themselves, it’s easy to assume they may not want a story with you any more. Given the studies that claim the activity of reading your child a story can significantly improve their logic skills and (at whatever age) can also lower their stress levels, it’s worth persevering.
If your older child seems to be losing interest in a bedtime story, maybe sit with them to find new story inspiration using resources via National Share-a-Story Month or check out Waterstones annual Children’s Book Prize or similar charts.
We all want the best for our children as they grow, and this should extend to their sleep too. Find out more about the features and benefits of a pocket sprung Millbrook Bed and allow your child to enjoy the same sleep comfort you enjoy.
