Like most parents, we look forward to that special bedtime story with our little ones. It’s a time when we can devote our full attention to the kids and the day to day distractions are put on the back-burner. What a relief! Celeb mommies agree that there’s nothing better than that bedtime reading and cuddle time. Today’s Celeb Watch discovers which books are in heavy rotation in homes of the rich and famous, thanks to CelebrityBabyScoop.com!
Actress Jennie Garth
“Skippyjon Jones is a favorite book of ours, it makes them laugh. And I like Chrysanthemum (by the amazing Kevin Henkes). And then there’s always Goodnight Moon, which always makes me feel peaceful and sleepy!”
Full House alum Jodie Sweetin
“We love to read! We have story time every night before bed. It’s about twenty minutes and they get to pick three books. Usually it’s the same ones. We have Goodnight Moon. But Pajama Time by Sandra Boynton is their favorite. It’s really cute and has a song – it’s our favorite cuddle book before bedtime. The baby loves her first-words-books. I’m a big reader myself, so I love reading to the girls. That’s a really big thing for me.”
Jessica Seinfeld, founder of Baby Buggy
“My family loves reading poems by Shel Silverstein together. We’ve read his poems so many times that by now we can all recite them by heart. At bedtime, we read a few together, using different voices for each character. After reading time, we try to give each child about 20 minutes alone time with mom or dad, to talk about issues that have arisen at school or home that day. We always try to end the day with some big laughs.”
Samantha Harris – ET correspondent
“There are different favorite books for each of our two girls for bedtime. Right now, each night, 10-month-old Hillary gets to cuddle before her bottle with Goodnight Moon. It was one of my favorites growing up. Josselyn gets to pick two books to read while cuddled up in mommy and daddy’s bed with us each night. Before we bring her to her room for lullabies, our favorites come from the Elephant & Piggie series by Mo Willems. I Broke My Trunk and Elephants Cannot Dance are at the top of the list. My husband, Michael, does the elephant’s voice and I read the Piggie’s parts. It cracks up all three of us!”
