Bath, Book, Bed

South Gloucestershire Libraries are giving away copies of a new free booklet featuring top tips and advice as part of the Bath, Book, Bed campaign: a national initiative from Booktrust encouraging families to make stories part of every child’s bedtime routine.

Reading a book before bed as part of a regular nightly routine is the perfect way to get your little one ready to visit the land of nod. Bath, Book, Bed is all you need to remember.

Bedtime routines are associated with improved sleep in young children. Benefits include earlier bedtimes, shorter amount of time in bed before falling asleep, less night wakings and sleeping for longer. But it doesn’t stop there. The same routine every night involving a story and shared reading won’t just help them fall asleep – it will also feed their imagination, creativity and confidence.

The library has lots of lovely picture books for you to choose from and they are all free to borrow. There are no library fines for children and no charge for any damage to books taken out by children under five.

Visit your local library to pick up a free Bath, Book, Bed booklet and choose your bedtime stories.
