I used to babysit my little cousins back in the day and their favourite stories before bed were recollections of what I did in the day haha. I was in university then and apparently what I wore, what I ate, who I saw and what I learnt in school fascinated the kids.

Most of the time my kids like fairy tales. For my younger one, he is not so choosy yet and any story is fine. Sometimes I will ask them to choose 2 animals that they like so I can make up my own stories for them and they find it very funny

My gal likes those books with more repetitive sentences at night, brown bear brown bear what do you see is one. Dear Zoo also. It's like nagging, the more repetitive it is, their brain will slowly shut down to it and drift off to bed :D

My nephew is too young to have a particular preference for a book. But he does have preference for stories. He loves stories with animals. The hare and the tortoise story and the boy who cried wolf are some of his favs!!

My boy loves Peter Rabbit. They are a bit long so we cut them in 2 or 3 parts so he will look forward to the next night's adventure :-) Whatever book you've chosen, make it fun! Have fun reading to your kids :-)

“How Do Dinosaurs Say Goodnight” book is sure to fire up the imaginations of little boys and girls alike. "Goodnight, Goodnight, Construction Site" is also great choice if you have a truck-lover at home

Winnie the Pooh, The Three Little Bears and Juan Tamad. :) My child loves the colorful illustrations as well as how i deliver each stories--it keeps him more engaged and yet sleepy as well. :)

While there maybe many bedtime stories, but whenever my niece (2.7yr) comes over, I make up some fairy tales for her. She quite enjoys them since she is the central in all of them!

My son doesn't like books. Hopefully its just a phase, I tried reading all kind of books but he is just too hyper for it for now.

Ours is Goldilocks and the three Bears. Our second most favorite is The Red Balloon from one of the collections of Grolier.
