I dedicate this blog post to my parents.

I grew up as the 4th of 5 boys in my family. One of my fondest memories would be story time. Every night one of my parents would come to every boy’s room and read a bedtime story. It was just part of our bedtime routine. We always had piles of books lying around, but out of the hundreds of books my parents read to me, the ones that I still remember to this day are these:

My 5 Favorite Bedtime Stories:

Where The Wild Things Are by Maurice Sendak

The Little Mouse and the Big Red Strawberry by Don Wood

Goodnight Moon by Margaret Wise Brown

The Kissing Hand by Audrey Penn

The True Story of the Three Little Pigs by Jon Scieszka


A lot of the time things were pretty hectic at the house, but this tradition was something truly spectacular that I’m going to carry on with my kids. And you can count on me reading these bedtime stories! I want to hear from you, is there any bedtime stories that you loved reading? Or did you have any fun family traditions like mine? I would love to hear from you!


Rest Easy,
