Snuggle Down Deep by Diane Ohanesian & Emily Bornoff

Snuggle Down DeepAs snow begins to fall around the UK, this beautiful book about hibernation is the perfect choice for bedtime.

Bears cuddle up in caves, squirrels curl up in their nests, mice tuck themselves in to the little tunnels they have dug underground and turtles dive down deep to the sticky mud at the bottom of the pond.

The choice of language is really soothing and the gentle rhyme is repetitive so I love reading this to Ivy on nights when a little extra calm is required before putting her to bed.

A Book of Sleep by Il Sung Na

A Book Of SleepBedtime has become a bit of a challenge at our house this week as Ivy has started chatting rather than sleeping when she gets in to bed.

This evening we have read this lovely little book about how different animals sleep. It’s a short and calm read with beautiful illustrations showing koalas, elephants, giraffes, penguins and more having a snooze.

She went to sleep a little quicker than last night so who knows? It may actually have helped! What are your favourite books to encourage sleep? I would love to hear your recommendations.
