Types of bedtime stories

A bedtime story could be a fairy tale, a fable or any short story that isn't too scary. Our kid’s stories come in all shapes and sizes, from silly rhymes to slightly more complex storylines. Whether you need stories to make your little one laugh, think or simply get lost in a good old-fashioned bedtime story adventure – we’ve got it all!

Why do we write bedtime stories?

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 bedtime stories for kids need to fit seamlessly into modern family lives which is why our free bedtime 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 bedtime stories for kids so they can enjoy the best quality content, enchanting stories and magical adventures.

Bedtime stories promote a positive attitude to reading and instil a love of books in children from an early age.

Why are bedtime stories so important?

Bedtime stories are an ideal way to end the day, as they help ease children into a peaceful sleep. Bedtime stories are important because they help to create a calming environment, whether bedtime stories are read sitting down or in bed, they encourage us to slow down.

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. Read our blog on The benefits of reading just 6 minutes together for more of the science behind bedtime stories.

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 bedtime stories are designed to inspire imagination and creativity in our young readers.

With so many bedtime stories to choose from, you can always find the perfect bedtime story on Sooper Books.
