10 Best Toddler Books to Read Before Bedtime

BOARD BOOKS ARE LIFE! My toddlers still have a short attention span. So when it comes to a great bed time book, I’m always reading board books! The great thing about most of these books is that they can also come in a full picture book version as well. These books can grow with your children!

Here are some of our favorite bed time books!
