When my son was small I used to read him bedtime stories before he went to sleep. Every night I read my boy a story from the book “A Story A Day” All the 365 tales for children were beautifully illustrated in full color. To a little boy all the stories seemed to be quite interesting to him even though they were short and simple. Almost all the time he would ask questions after I finished reading the story. Normally he would fall asleep after getting the satisfactorily answer.

I used to when we still do not have our own internet connection at home. But now that we already have an internet connection, I would just usually browse for an online story with animated videos on YouTube or UpToTen. It seems they are enjoying it more than bedtime storytelling.

Most of the time my husband will read the bedtime stories to my 4 years old daughter while I sing the lullabies. Lately we found a more interesting way to do bedtime story. We have this small chidren projector with bedtime story slide. So...we just turn off the light and turn the projector slide on and start the bedtime stories...almost like bedtime movies actually...it's kinda fun for a change.

When my girls were little they always had a story at bedtime. What a perfect time to bond with your child and foster the love of reading. Now that I'm a Grandma, I read my grandson a story before his nap everyday that I watch him, and my daughter reads him a story each night when he first gets into bed. It's a good tradition! He's only 3 1/2, but my daughter takes him each week to the library and lets him pick out the books that he will have for story time that are appropriate for his age group. He now loves going to the library too.

Sometimes. I spend all day with my baby so I have all the time to read to him! His big brother enjoys reading to him too so he will do so sometimes. I try not to read to my 6 year old because I get him to read to me but I will sometimes read him a story if he asks.

I haven't done this but I intend to do so. My only daughter (& child, still) is just turning two this month. At present, she's with my mother in the province so I can't possibly read her bedtime stories. Hopefully & prayerfully, we'll be able to arrange our finances in the coming months, pay-off debts within the year, hire a nanny, so that we could be with our (me & my husband) daughter and do bonding with her as a family.
