The Sleep Council storytelling-week Once Upon A Time….  Did you know that it’s National Storytelling Week tomorrow (26th January- 2nd February)?

Now in its 13th year, the awareness campaign celebrates storytelling whether it’s retelling something that’s happened in your day; reading a night time story to a child; or watching a plot unfold on TV – storytelling is a part of our own everyday lives.

At the Sleep Council we love a good book and we thought this was a great opportunity to remind you all that reading before bed is a great relaxant – much better than tweeting or Facebooking!

It’s also important for children to wind down properly before bed and what better way than to read a story to your child or make one up. Even better, get them to create and share one with you. Trust me when I tell you that it’s amazing where kids’ imaginations can go!!

The Sleep Council reading-in-bed Once Upon A Time….  As a mum of two, my kids have a bedtime story EVERY single night, without fail. They love it. And I do too. It’s really lovely to snuggle up with them at the end of a busy day and lose them (and myself) in a fantasy world of make-believe. Plus it’s a great way of establishing a bedtime routine and helping your little ones wind down.

Everyone loves a good story so make it your mission this week to participate.
