We love to read, especially right before bedtime. It’s a great way to end our day and it’s part of our bedtime routine. My daughter likes to read the Pajanimals since she was introduced to them. She really likes the duck called Squacky and her brother and I like to read to her before bedtime.
The PAJANIMALS series, now in its second season on Sprout (the 24-hour preschool television channel) and weekends on NBC Kids, follows the amazing adventures of four sweet and gentle characters—Sweetpea Sue the pony, the excitable duck Squacky, the creative cow CowBella and the optimistic puppy Apollo. Through their imaginary journeys, these cuddly musical puppets venture out on amazing adventures of discovery, modeling the skills preschoolers need to move through their days successfully, especially getting ready for and going to bed.
Bedtime Routine Board from TOMY (SRP: $29.99):
Parents/caregivers and kids will both love getting ready for bedtime with this fun activity board. As you start your activity slide, move the corresponding character halfway to hear the start sound. When you finish, push him into the bed at the bottom and hear a fun sound for completion! Once you finish all your tasks and it’s time for bed, the Lalalullaby song will sooth you to sleep. Four tasks include take a bath, put on pajamas, brush your teeth, and read a book.

• Sweet Pea Sue Makes a New Friend from Running Press (SRP: $7.95)
