The iHV is delighted to support the BookTrust’s #BathBookBed campaign to help parents create a regular nightly routine to get their little ones to sleep at night.
Bath, Book, Bed is a national campaign from BookTrust to encourage parents to make stories part of every child’s bedtime routine – with parenting expert Jo Frost and the much-loved Daddy Pig as the ambassadors for Bath, Book, Bed.
The campaign is endorsed by the iHV:
By making reading part of a bedtime routine, your child will relax, learn new language and this bonding time between you will always be looked forward to. Books are essential to development and screen time will never be a substitute.
All parents/carers worry about getting young children to sleep at night – and, of course, getting enough sleep themselves. But it doesn’t have to be a bedtime battle. Reading a book before bed as part of a regular nightly routine is the perfect way to get your little one ready to visit the land of nod. Bath, Book, Bed is all you need to remember.

The BookTrust website also features a Best Bedtime Books list and has lots more ideas, guidance and practical tips on ensuring stories are part of every child’s bedtime routine.
