Review of Little Stars Bedtime Cards5:10 PM
It took us awhile to review these. It's not that I don't love the idea (cards you show and read to your kids before bed every night that teaches them a lesson and helps them ease into sleep.) I just faced a bit of resistance with doing this the very last part of the day. We traditionally read books, and my guys are so squirmy that I usually drag them straight from the tub to bed with a bit of nagging in between.
The Little Stars Bedtime Cards are phenomenal, however. Each of the 28 cards features a bright illustration of one of the Little Stars characters, as well as a series of discussion questions that help kids go to bed feeling loved and secure. You can either read the cards to your kid in place of a story (keeping them next to the bed and letting your kids pick one off the top -- like a game) or you can opt to slip a card under their pillow, letting them find it (kind of like a gift from the toothfairy.)
The themes presented by the cards are appropriate for all families. The messages say things like, "I like who I am" and "I can do hard things." Surprisingly simple, amazingly effective, and a peaceful way to connect at the end of every day, I think this would make a great routine for busy families who just want to be there for one another before they go to bed!
