In India most kids co-sleep. But sleeping independently in a big bed is a huge milestone overseas! Sometimes, we too get a query on the topic. So we decided to curate everyone’s recommendations.
Time To Sleep, Little Critters This book is highly recommended by Amardeep.
Time to sleep Little critters has two lovely stories on sleep time, and depicts the little critters trying to escape their sleep time by giving the most funny excuses. It’s a lovely book to get children used to sleeping in their own bed, in their own room without the help of adults around as it shows them sleeping independently, albeit after trying their best to escape.
Little Critter: Just Go To Bed – another book in the series on the topic!
Little Critter: All By Myself – this is a brilliant book (all the little critter books are everyone’s faves) on teaching a toddler/pre-schooler to be independent. Quoting Shraddha Garg, who also recommends this book for STRANGER DANGER,
One of the books that really helped us is Little Critter’s All by Myself. It’s a fantastic book to teach a child what all she can and should do on her own.
Time to Go to Bed: The perfect picture book for talking about bedtime routines – by Penny Tessoni, a leading early years education consultant. This book is quite popular in our community and comes highly recommended for 2-4 years. All the books in her good habits series are superhits with our kbc childoos!
Sabah’s was researching books on the topic as well – these were the ones she found:
Kausar Makki recommends Llama Llama Red Pajama which has helped many of our kbc childoos deal with all sorts of issues from separation anxiety to sleeping by oneself.
Many thanks to Amardeep, Sabah, Kausar, Divya and #the14yearold for helping us curate this post.
