When are we too old to read bedtime stories? My answer is: Never. As long we keep our inner-child alive. How often do we read bedtime stories to our children or grandchildren? With the progress of the technology nowadays and the lack of time I am afraid that too many children fall asleep in front of the TV or playing a computer game instead of reading or being read some pleasant story.
In this collection of bedtime stories and poems, the author has succeeded in giving the readers, both young and old, an invitation to fall asleep peacefully. In addition to that offering food for their thought process.
The stories contain shrewdly thoughtful messages for all of its readers to sleep on. While some stories will enable children to learn more about taking care of animals, making friends and instilling family values, others will help the reader relate to certain life situation as moving to a new city or a new school. And there is a ghost story too. Children love ghosts, don’t they? Especially the good and kind will make no harm.
The poems are expertly crafted to put the reader in a peaceful, contented state of mind. Sweet dreams will be guaranteed.
Throughout the whole book, I could sense that every word was written with a lot of love and joy and it’s clear that not only the talent but also the author’s good heart helped in the creation of such wonderful stories.
Captivating and engaging from start to finish. I warmly recommend.
Type of reader: I think these delightful and charming stories and poems are suitable for everyone: children, teenagers, and adults that will always keep a young heart and mind.
My favorite quotes from this book:
“A gentle breeze passed by my face,
I closed my eyes to feel it more.
A tender touch from nature's grace,
Days like this I do adore.”
“Softly and gently off we go,
To lands far away only our mind will know.
The sweetest dreams we’ll have tonight,
And wake tomorrow with delight.”
My rating: 5/5.
