A Bedtime Story and Milk Help Children Sleep Better and $40 Walmart Giveaway #POSITIVISMO

Sep 28, 12 A Bedtime Story and Milk Help Children Sleep Better and $40 Walmart Giveaway #POSITIVISMO

Reading to children can provide a lot of benefits including strengthening the bond between parents and their children.   By now you know that giving your children milk before bedtime may help them sleep better and be more alert and aware the following morning.  There is a new collection of bedtime stories that were developed to encourage kids to drink milk while the story is being read to them. The books provide a fun and engaging way to spend quality time with your children, while helping them to get a good night’s sleep.

My favorite book is El Mal Humor de Benito.  All the books are bilingual and will not only help your child learn to read in multiple languages, but also encourages kids to have a glass of milk before they go to bed.  Benito the Elephant has a bad attitude to the point that a lot of the friends around him don’t want to be around him.    This story encourages children going through a similar situation and has a positive ending.

Download bedtime stories from www.otroscuentos.com to read to your children while drinking milk.

To help you prepare your child for bedtime at home El Maestro is providing one of my readers with a $40 Walmart Giftcard and a FREE hard copy of your child’s favorite bedtime story. Follow the instructions below to win it!
