I don't really know, but I believe stories that are very emotional or scary could actually affect a child's sleep. However, I have heard that what really matters is not the content of the story, but the tone of the voice you use. I have heard you can practically read even the newspaper to your child, as long as you keep a calm, soft voice. Anyway, I do not know whether this is true or not, but I would never take the chance to try this and I would limit myself to the classic bedtime stories

It is true. I believe that a bedtime stories before sleeping have a relaxing effect. More over the soothing voice of a mother or anyone telling a story makes them fall asleep more easily. It will not only their dream that will be affected, I am sure. It's more to the bond between the storyteller and the listener, in this case - the parent and kids.
