For the littlest listeners, sleep is a very familiar topic. Whether it's a favorite or not varies, of course, but these charming bedtime books should soothe even the crankiest listeners and encourage them to rest and dream.
Preschoolers aren't too small to have big dreams. So whether you want to explore future endeavors or focus on the here-and-now, check out the stories below to spark some conversations about night skies, overnight adventures or imaginative ambitions. And don't forget to visit your local library to celebrate summer reading and feed your dreams.
It's summer time and the reading is easy. Pick a book that offers a glimpse of the future or one that illuminates the past. Share a story about the stars or laugh together at a crazy dream. Think about your future career or just giggle at a silly Piggie. Whatever you do, don't forget to visit the library sometime this summer.
For some, the perfect summer is spent doing: planting a garden, learning what dreams mean, watching how stars move across the sky or practicing performance skills. For others, the best way to spend time is reading, whether that means enjoying stories about fantastic adventures or savoring poems that illuminate the night-time world. Whatever your taste, you'll find something to suit your summer in the list below or at your local library.
