Do you read your LO a book at bedtime? Is their one specific book they fall asleep on faster, or do you just read them whatever story they pick out?

For the longest time my daughters loved getting 'Goodnight Moon' read to them, now their into fairy tales and the 'happily ever after' stories..

Dd is eight and I used to read to her every night now it is 1-3 times a week.

One of her favorite books is There is a monster at the end of this book

We read Harry Potter. We're about to start on the first from Book 1 again. After we're done with those, we'll read Wizard of Oz, and then we'll decide from there. They are 3 (4 in March) and 2 (3 in July).

I tried to read my 8 month old a Dr. Suess book while I was nursing him to sleep last night. He cried...

I love reading though, so we'll definitely do bedtime stories... When he's old enough to appreciate them!

honestly my 4yr old doesnt have any preferences, she picks a different one everynight I've always read to her and she loves it, its great bonding time, plus its ALWAYS a great thing to read a book!

Whatever story they want, but generally at night time the request is for a completely made up story and they help me complete it, or add to it. It doesn't help them fall asleep, so we go to bed early to complete our story. Set a time, and when that time ends we come to a quick ending and it's lights out time! :D Well, not exactly lights out since the light is out during this, but bed time.

We read every night before bed. DD is 4. We just finished the My Father's Dragon trilogy and are working on Little House inthe Big Woods (Laura Ingalls Wilder), a chapter a night. We have a ton of kids books, so on nights when we forgo the chapter books, we read a picture book or two, titles depending on what sort of mood we're in (sleepy, silly, adventurous, magical).

My grandson Jonny has me read Ten Little Ladybugs, Goodnight Moon and Who am I every nap and bedtime. He also likes them read in that order. LOL

That is awesome! What fabulous memories it will give your kids, and what a boost for imagination. I hope you write some of them down to remember in the future, or record them in some way.
