Along with spring comes later sunsets, and while I love the few extra hours of daylight we get to enjoy, it certainly makes bedtime a little more difficult. No one wants to go to bed when the sun is still peeking out!
So we take this opportunity to refresh our bookshelves with some fun new bedtime stories to help the kids wind down each night. It’s a great chance to find new favorites to stock our shelves with, and score some extra snuggles in the meantime. A good children’s picture book can really help bring a great day to an even better end.
I love to add a few new books to the kid’s Easter baskets as well, a great candy-free way to bring smiles to their faces! Here are some of our favorite children’s books this year!
