How to use this book
At bedtime, you as a parent, your child, or the twoof you together, can choose a sentence for the child to think about when it’s time to go to sleep. Take your time to look at the illustration together and let the sentence sink in properly before saying ’goodnight’.
Do the same thing every night before you leave the room and switch off the light so it becomes a bedtime routine. My daughter Matilda, was so inspired by some of these sentences that she invented stories which evolved over several evenings. Sometimes she would say, ”Mommy, I don’t need a new thought tonight; I haven’t finished thinking about the one from yesterday!” I thought it was wonderful that she could get so absorbed in her own ideas; transported into the wonderful make-believe world she carried inside her head.
