You may remember that BookTrust ran a successful on-line campaign last year to help promote a good bedtime routine for children. Bath Book Bed was relaunched on 24th April and is proving very popular. Part of the campaign is a new 16-page booklet available in hard copy or, if you prefer, to download. The booklet features the celebrity parenting expert Jo Fros, and Peppa Pig’s long-suffering father, Daddy Pig. Visit www.booktrust.org.uk/bathbookbed to find out more. Share your tips and ideas too using @BookTrust and #BathBookBed
Every Hampshire library and Children’s Centre has received a quantity of the printed booklets, so please drop in and ask for a copy next time you are passing. While you are visiting the library, why not ask about children’s activities such as Rhymetimes and Storytimes. Even better, have a look at the hundreds of board books and picture books we have available. If you’re not certain which books will be best for your child, have a chat with a member of staff. They’ll be happy to help you choose.
If you are looking especially for picture books dealing with bedtime problems, we have some suggestions in the When A Book Might Help section of our blog.
Good night – sleep tight.
