Books, Toys & Ideas for Infant, Toddler and Grade School Girls
One of the most popular fantasies for a little girl is wishing she was a princess. I'm not sure that dream ever goes away really, because we all want to be loved and feel special.
Books to bed have combined some of the best stories with sleepwear in the hopes of encouraging young minds to read and use their imagination.
Characters like Pinkalicious, Geraldine and Cinderella are all part of the fantasy world our little girls take part in each day. What better way for children to learn than to let them wear their favorite characters while reading about them?
Books to bed make wonderful gifts and help grandparents when wee ones have a sleepover. It creates a bond with the adult as well as with the characters in each story.
Along with character pajamas and books, look for more accessories for the story line. Help your child discover the inner sparkle in her by giving the gift of reading.

The Very Fairy Princess - by Julie Andrews
Julie Andrews and her daughter share in the joy of writing together. She said, "It's like a sandbox we can get into and play without any other issues." Their love of kids and writing brought them together, allowing them to co-author many books over the years.
The Very Fairy Princess book was inspired by one of Julie's granddaughters. The book focuses on how each little girl is an individual and that we need to celebrate the differences in each child.
The books starts out with a little girl named Geraldine who truly believes she is a fairy princess. The problem is that no one else believes her. All through the day the fairy princess likes to spread a little sparkle into people's (and toys) lives by bringing good cheer.
Geraldine does have some rules though. She only wears dresses. Her favorite classes in school are art and music (naturally). Those are the places where she really gets to shine creatively. But even more than school there is something Geraldine loves the most. Fairy princesses love to sing for sure, but the "mostest" favorite thing she loves is to dance in her ballet classes. With all that spinning and twirling, a princess' crown does tend to get in the way, but it is manageable.
What would an after school snack be without pink lemonade and lots of sparkly sugar cookies? There's just so much to do when you're a fairy princess that it gets exhausting. Little Gerry gets her beauty sleep and wakes to a new sparkling day.
Not a reading of the story, but a brief look at the illustrations to give an idea of the "sweetness" of this little Very Fairy Princess.
You'll connect with your readers. If you type a sentence here about why you love this video.
Julie Andrews reads The Very Fairy Princess: Here Comes The Princess.
"It has sparkles and bubbles, what more can you ask for?"

The Rainbow Fish
This is a book with a wonderful story line. It is about a fish that is more beautiful than any other fish in the ocean. What makes this fish different is it's rainbow of colors and sparkles that make up the scales.
He was adored by all the other fish and they would call out to him to play, but he never did. All he would do is swim past them with pride as his scales shimmered in the water. One day a little blue fish asked Rainbow if he would give him one of his scales, but he became angry and yelled at the blue fish. The little fish was so hurt by what Rainbow fish did that he told all the other fish in the ocean. From that day on no one would pay any attention to Rainbow because of his hurtful behavior, and he became the loneliest fish there was.
Searching for answers a starfish directs him to a wise octopus for help. Rainbow didn't like the advice he got. Mrs. Octopus told him to give away all his shiny scales so that he was no longer the most beautiful fish in the ocean. How could he do that? How would giving his scales away make him happy?
Discover what it means to give away the things you most value and how it will change your life as you read what happens to Rainbow fish when the little blue fish returns. A delightful "tale" and lesson on what it means to give to others.
The story is read aloud as you follow along with the pictures.

No worries though, Birdie makes a discovery when she escapes to her favorite place to think … the attic. What does Birdie come up with in her creative imagination? A dress that is perfectly Birdie.

Begin Your Own Twelve Days of Christmas Tradition
A Christmas doesn't go by without hearing the song about the Twelve Days of Christmas, with all the characters for each verse dancing their way into our festivities. It was this holiday classic that inspired our own celebration of story and tradition.
Over the years we have selected a different family for Twelve Days of Christmas gifts. Every day they receive a surprise that coincides with the story, but with a religious theme. The final gift either comes on Christmas Day or New Year’s Day depending on the circumstances. On day twelve we offer a suggestion for the family to extend this same season of giving to another family the following year, keeping the spirit of Christmas alive.
You can do the same with the reading of Christmas stories throughout the holiday season. Children will love gathering around in their special pajamas to read their favorite books as families make new memories for Christmas.

Have a sing-a-long with your family after you have read the story. See how much they remember.
