Getting Rid of Those Monsters.
Monster Trouble! - Lane Fredrickson,Michael Robertson

This children's bedtime story is about a brave little girl who deals with ridding her room of monsters in a clever way. It has rhyming and great vocabulary. Teachers might want to go over with younger students that monsters do not exist and this book is just for fun. The ending is so sweet and loveable, you can't help but love little Winifred, the main character.

One great activity for this book could be to have students create and color their own monsters out of construction paper, and then write one way that they would make their monsters leave them alone. 

Reading level: Pre-K-2

Lexile measure: AD580L

Baby Groot!
Night Night, Groot - Brendan Deenan,Cale Atkinson

This is such a fun story for those students who love their super heroes and action packed books. Baby Groot gets a recap of his fun days spent with his friend and it even includes rhyming. I would use this book with caution in the classroom, as it does involve super heroes and fight scenes with the bad guys. A fun activity for this book would be to have students write short poems. 

Grade level: 6-8 years old

Flesch reading ease score: 106.2

Cat Nap.
The Napping House - Audrey Wood,Don Wood

This is a fun book to read aloud for children. The illustrations are wonderfully large and bold. Aside from using this book in a ELA class, it could be used in a math class for counting. I love that it includes songs to go along with it. It would be fun to have students cut out each character in the book and stack them accordingly to the book.  An example of this activity can be found with the following link. https://www.pinterest.com/pin/287597126176697047/

Grandpa Bernie's Bedtime Stories by Bernard Ditchik
Grandpa Bernie's Bedtime Stories - Bernard Ditchik

This book is no where near Mother Goose but I personally enjoyed it as much as the kids. The stories are original and fresh. Most come with a bit of a lesson as well. I personally like to read educational in some way stories to the kids. Life Lessons are a great way to teach the kids to be people you can be proud of .This book is great at gently teaching these lessons.

The stories feature animals as the characters and in most they are the main characters. Each of the stories are short and great for bedtime. Grandpa Bernie has done an amazing job with these stories. I would be more then proud to give a copy of this book to family and friends Children as gifts. My Grand Children ages 2 and 5 really enjoyed this book. There are 18 stories in the book. Great for bedtime as I said but also great for a few minutes of cuddle time.

How to Train Your Dragon - Cressida Cowell

I've just started reading this one with my five-year-old at bedtime. He's watched the film and series, so I thought he might like the stories, since he's outgrown many of our usual bedtime books. So far, so good. We're reading one chapter a night, and he's doing a great job remembering what happened the previous chapter every time we start up again.
