I have just started reading to Hudson now before bed. It has been a fantastic way to keep him in his bed, without coming out all the time, or worse me sitting with him until he falls asleep.
After I have read the same book a few times, I let him read it himself, and before you know it he is asleep. I just love it.
I have noticed he seems to like the same books for a few nights in a row, and then we change.
This week we are reading,
A gorgeous little story about a leopard who's mummy goes hunting for food & he misses her cuddles, so he gets lots of them elsewhere.
