Making bedtime a gentle time
Looking for quiet activities to enjoy with your kids? Try Kiss Good Night, by Amy Hest, a gentle bedtime story for 3 to 6 year olds, reviewed by Elizabeth Kennedy, the About.com Guide to Children’s Books. In addition to the sweet story, I have always been drawn to this book by the beautiful colors in the illustrations by Anita Jeram.
