Why are bedtime stories so important?
We all know a bedtime routine helps to get our little ones off to sleep, and we would argue that a bedtime story is a vital part of the routine. Nighttime stories are an ideal way to end the day, as they help ease children into a peaceful sleep. Bedtime stories for kids are important because they help to create a calming environment, whether nighttime stories are read sitting down or in bed, they encourage us to slow down.
Plus did you know reading before bed has been proven to help kids (and adults!) have a better sleep? Studies have shown that reading as little as 6 minutes per day can improve our quality of sleep, reduce stress, and sharpen our mental ability. Plus reading doesn't just help children have a good night's sleep, it helps adults too.
We want bedtime routines to be a positive experience for children and parents alike. Our digital books are designed to inspire imagination and creativity in our young readers.
Sooper Books has a range of short bedtime stories for kids, from 2 minutes to 5 minutes. These are perfect for a nighttime routine. We know bedtimes can be unpredictable, however a short bedtime story for kids can help create an easier bedtime routine.
With so many stories to choose from, you can always find the perfect bedtime story on Sooper Books.
Why do we write bedtime stories for kids?
When we first decided to create a bedtime story for kids, we knew we wanted it to be fun, engaging and high quality.
We wanted Sooper Books to bring children's publishing into the 21st century. We strongly believe that nighttime stories for kids need to fit seamlessly into modern family lives which is why our free stories are all online.
It began when we started writing stories for our own family. Then our friends and wider families asked for copies and we started to share Sooper Books with other children.
At Sooper Books we write, curate and narrate stories for kids so they can enjoy the best quality content, enchanting stories and magical adventures. With our stories we work towards promoting a positive attitude to reading and instil a love of books in children from an early age.
