Toddler Bedtime Books
December 3, 2013 11:23 PM Subscribe
Looking for recommendations for books about bedtime or ending with the character(s) asleep. My not-quite-two-year-old seems to actively get much sleepier when we read bedtime orientated books. Goodnight Little Bear
and Goodnight Moon
have both worked to help calm him down for bedtime, and I'd like a bit more variety in my night time book repertoire.

Color Kittens is a favorite of his but (spoiler alert) it ends with Brush and Hush pouncing in the sunshine so its not an effective sleep aid.
Additionally, books dealing with being scared of the dark are a no-go (ie Goodnight Lewis or Llama Llama Red Pajama. He currently has no fear of monsters under beds or in closets and I'm not interested in introducing that concept.
