For as long as my son has been on this planet we have been reading to him. My mother read to him in our hospital room the morning after he was born and we've been reading to him day and night since.
It's important. I believe that a child learning to read is one of the single most important things that can happen to them. Think, what is more life changing than reading?
So I thought I'd share some of our reading favorites.

Good Night Moon. This one is a classic and we have been reading it to sweet baby boy since the day we brought him home. Good night room, good night moon...
The Going to Bed Book. We heart Susan Boykin at this house. But The Going To Bed Book is our favorite. My sister gave it to me as a shower present and it might be time to buy a new copy.
The Begginers Bible. Each night we read the baby a bible story and a book or two. This one was really good for basic stories. However, my husband did find himself trying to explain some of the inaccuracies to our toddler.
If you Give a Mouse a Cookie. This is officially the first book that our boy has gotten attached to. I read it six or seven times a day. I am not even kidding a couple weeks ago I hid it just to give us a break from that mouse and his cookie. I think I recite it in my sleep.
Guess How Much I love You. Jason bought this one for our boy right after he was born. It's so sweet and I love listening to him read it to the baby.
There is a Monster at The End of This Book. We love Grover. Elmo is seriously over-rated. This is another book Jason bought the boy and I remember this one from my childhoo. I think the boy loves it as much as I do.
The Little Blue Truck. This is one of our favorites. We loved this one so much we have made it the new baby's nursery theme. I love the friendly little blue truck and all his farm animal friends.
Do you have a bedtime book favorite?
