The Ideal bedtime story
on 27 April 2012
After a hard day's work you'll be tired. The last thing you'll want to do is read a bedtime story over and over and over again to your energetic kids who just won't go to sleep until you have. Well that's what this book is about.
The book starts with a child dragon who wants a bedtime story to be read to them by their mummy/daddy/guardian dragon, who obliges. Then the child dragon wants it read again. The mummy/daddy/whatever dragon reads it again, a slightly different version. Then the child dragon wants it to be read again. And so on with the parent dragon getting more and more fed up/tired and the child getting more and more frustrated resulting in chaos at the end, hence a hole in the back of the book.
So this is the ideal bedtime story because you and your child can relate to the story. And hopefully it can aid your child's understanding that parents don't have unlimited energy, especially at the end of the day, so don't necessarily want to continuously read them bedtime stories. But the book says all this in a fun way, which is why my daughters and I love it.
