5 Minute Really True Stories for Bedtime

Looking for a great grab and go bedtime book?


I think 5 Minute Really True Stories for Bedtime from Britannica Books is genius.  It’s a book containing 30 5-minute stories written for bedtime, about….SLEEP! and all things nighttime. When I first read the table of contents I actually laughed a little realizing they were all about slumber and the night. You can read stories about sleeping in space, night hunters, hibernators, the Northern Lights, and King Tut’s beds. There is so much information packed on these pages that Big Kid and I spent way more than 5 minutes reading and talking about each story, but we learned a lot and had fun. The illustrations are detailed, nice to look at, and add to the already descriptive text. This would be an awesome addition to anyone’s nighttime routine.


You can find 5 Minute Really True Stories for Bedtime on the “Bedtime” book list on the “Topical Book List” page, as well as to my Bookshop Shop on Bookshop.org, an online bookstore with a mission to financially support local, independent bookstores by making a donation every time a book is purchased on their site.
