Bedtime is either a time that parents love or dread. There is just no in between! It can be hard work if your child dislikes bedtime or finds it hard to drift off, there was a period of time when Darcie was a lot younger, where she would only fall asleep if we laid next to her and sometimes it would take hours! However, bedtime is now something we look forward to, even Darcie never whinges when it's time to go to bed and it's all because she knows it's time for a bedtime story or two.
ASPACE in partnership with The Great British Book Shop have teamed up to find the top 10 books for bedtime. I was so pleased when we were asked to take part as Darcie is such a big lover of books. So in order to find these top 10 books for bedtime, I, along with other bloggers, have been sent 10 books to review.
We have loved being a part of the project and have discovered so many brilliant reads, including now firm favourites of Darcie's, The Jolly Postman and I Wish I'd Been Born a Unicorn. The Jolly Postman is a book I remembered from my childhood so I was really pleased we now had a copy we could enjoy together. Darcie loves how interactive the book is, she get's so excited to open up the envelopes to see what's inside, it brought back memories for me too.
She also loved 'I Wish I'd Been Born a Unicorn' is a lovely and heartwarming story about learning to love yourself and true friendship. Something that both children and adults can benefit from reading about! She has asked for this book to be read time and time again.
We received other books including;
The Jolly Postman
I Wish I'd Been Born a Unicorn
Pip and Posy: The Little Puddle
Charlie and Lola: I will not Ever Eat a Tomato
We're Going on a Bear Hunt
No Matter What
Where the Wild Things Are
The Tiger Who Came for Tea

All of the books have been a big hit in our house and I'm looking forward to sharing each book with you in more detail in the coming weeks.
Now I have two books I'm going to giveaway to my lovely readers, Charlie & Lola's 'I Will Not Ever Never Eat a Tomato' and 'We're Going on a Bear Hunt'. This is open to UK residents only.
Are your children a fan of any of the books listed? What's your child's favourite bedtime story?
