Never underestimate the importance of a good bedtime routine when trying to get the little ones off to sleep. A big part of getting your child relaxed and ready for the land of nod is by telling them a bedtime story.

We’ve teamed up with Storynory to bring you four fab bedtime stories. This week we’ve got a classic kids’ story called ‘The Selfish Giant’ – you can listen to the audio book below, or click to read the story, complete with sound effects and funny voices!

This fairy-tale is set in a garden that is not unlike paradise. Children play freely among the trees and flowers, while the owner, The Selfish Giant, returns from a long holiday and drives out the children. But all is not lost, for the giant finds redemption through a child.

Packed full of adventure and humor, there is also a lovely moral to this story, making this tale a hit with children and their parents. So get your child tucked up in their bed, and send them off to dreamland with this story running through their sleepy head…

FUN FACT ALERT!

Reading bedtime stories can help to nurture a child’s creativity and imagination. With TV shows, computer games and movies, kids don’t use their imaginations as much these days, but a good story gets them creating funny characters, enchanted lands and epic adventures in their heads, all from the comfort of their own bed!
