Secret Mountain Books

Ok, picture this :
It's 8:25pm and you are exhausted from the day's happenings....Your kiddos are still running around acting crazy and you are wondering WHERE IN THE WORLD DO THEY GET THIS ENERGY and how on earth will I get them to calm down for bedtime??!!
Been there?
That's how it is every night around here.
My secret....
STORY TIME!
After we get the kids teeth brushed and pj's on (and of course drinks of water, hugs, kisses OH and potty time) we settle into our beds and I will read them a story.
Usually mid way through the book I notice a few yawns.
WOO HOO!
And at the end of the book there is little to NO fighting about turning out the light.
SCORE!
Do you read to your kiddos at bedtime?
If you are searching for some new books to read I highly suggest The Secret Mountain books.
Recently, we were lucky enough to receive three of their award winning books and each one includes a cd filled with wonderful songs.
The books we reviewed:
*Down at the Sea Hotel
*A Duck in New York City
*Dream Songs Night Songs: From Belgium to Brazil
Our favorite was definately A Duck in New York City. This story is about a cute little duck who dreams of dancing on Broadway some day. He meets up with a friendly truckdriver and she helps him along the way. Does he ever get to sing and dance on Broadway? You are gonna have to read the book to find out!!
The Secret Mountain books are known for their many prestigious awards and there are so many different book titles to choose from.
These would definately make great stocking stuffers for the holiday!
