When it's time for your little boy's bedtime you can help him eagerly anticipate this moment by selecting bedtime stories that he wants to hear over and over again.

While your child will have favorites that he may frequently demand, there are thousands of books with fascinating adventures for both of you to enjoy. Your young one may want to listen once more to the popular Harry Potter series, but you should also have some other books and authors on hand. A variety of tales is a sure way to keep your child interested in this nightly ritual.

Bedtime stories are a wonderful way to connect with kids and they also help you re-connect with your own inner child. Today there is a larger assortment of topics, titles and authors from which to choose, and you can easily find some tales that will catch the interest and fanciful imagination of your kids. Of course every child is different, and you should try to match the books and stories to their age.
Very young boys delight in books that have repetition, rhyme and funny stories by authors like Dr. Seuss, Shel Silverstein or Maurice Sendak. These types of books will be some of their favorites even when they are older. You will also find that many little boys prefer stories that help them relate to the main characters, and they always appreciate stories that combine elements of magic with daring adventures.
