Short Bed Time stories in English
For a child, the reading level by the third grade is an indicator of how well their future educational success is dependent on their growth. And if by a certain time they aren’t able to read at a 3rd-grade level it makes them feel left out from the other peers around them.
But that’s only what studies say, there’s always a way out of everything.
Bedtime stories for storytelling is a small start to that gradual growth level. Especially bedtime stories that are wrapped around morals or lessons that help them picture aspects of life differently and in a more positive manner.
Short stories in English or any other language in fact help promote areas in a child’s life, have you ever seen how a child gets interested upon listening to stories said by their grandparents and others? That’s because it directly targets the area of their brain that helps them imagine and grow the aspect of imaging what’s being said, eventually making their brain a mini television.
Benefits of Bedtime stories:
- The aspect of reading along or hearing stories at bedtime is a huge benefit to children’s growth in enriching their reading and language skills. Helping them grow, able to converse, and build their vocabulary.
- It helps them think out of the box and build their imagination, and building a child’s imagination is an important aspect of their growth. As they read vs when they watch television, imagination is an aspect that is highlighted, and while reading that’s where it’s sharpened. Hence Reading and hearing bedtime stories is an important aspect.
- Building warm memories and spending time with loved ones is another important aspect of having bedtime stories.
- Whilst allowing active communication and the need to discuss and also question if they were in such a position as in the story what would they do, making them pick their brain and think out of the box.

He laughed at Jumbo the elephant which was rude and troubled Robbie the rabbit which was cruel.
“Hey!! Jumbo the fatty long nose & petty little Robbie.” Said Jimmy.
One morning a hunter intended to catch Jimmy and lays a trap.
Jimmy gets caught but Robbie and Jumbo together pull him out of the trap.
