Every parent knows that kids like to repeat the same book over and over. It looks like you have been reading the same book for zillion times and they never get tired. Because kids like to feel stability and to be in a comfort zone. They are afraid of changes. Well, we adults also are afraid of changes, but our experience let us accept the daily changes. Our kids don’t have the experience yet and everything is a change, challenge, and new to them.
The problem starts when we want them to go to sleep, and they want us. We are their stability. their anchor to what they know to be safe and secure. Repeating the story is the same type of anchor.
My book ‘go to sleep, mommy is tired’, (available on Amazon) is the first book in the goodnight stories series. This is a short book aimed for young kids at the age of one-year-old to five years old. Been a short story makes it easy for us, parents, to repeat it. The kids can see the large pictures and enjoy them, and as they get older, they can try to read it themself. Been short story with easy words kids the learn to read will find this book easy to practice reading.
And as we are in the Corona (CVID19) era, this can be a book that grandparent, that can’t meet their grandchildren reads to them via zoom.
Enjoy the book and stay safe and healthy.
