Now that school has started, my own children are certainly more tired. However, their brains are wide awake processing new timetables, teachers and assignments. We try to read a bit before bed to calm their minds and slow their heart rates.
In sorting through some new books, a pattern developed and I decided to group these 5 books as they are ideal for bedtimes and will suit all ages!

I am a primary school teacher, turned librarian. Now I have the title Reading Advocate for ASSET Education Trust, based in Suffolk.
I read constantly and have more books than bookshelves, but I wouldn't have it any other way.
I celebrate reading every day at work and at home with my two children, aged 11 and 9.
I sit on the National Executive Committee for the Federation of Children’s Book Groups and run an OU/UKLA Teachers as Readers group!
