When my grandson was a couple of months away from his fourth birthday, he thought sleeping was some sort of punishment. He dreaded going to bed and we could only put him to bed after he nods off to sleep in a chair or on the floor, while playing with his toys. When he rarely gets into bed awake, only imaginary reptiles and small animals lurking on the floor, would keep him in bed until he sleeps off. He was terrified of small animals but regards squashing tiny insects his birthright.
The boy loves stories and adores hearing them, like most children do. He also likes telling stories himself, in his childish nonsensical style. The first time I told him a 'WHY STORY', he loved it so much that he told everybody else. Going to bed became much easier, with a promise to tell him a 'WHY STORY'. He always has questions and these gave birth to another and yet another 'WHY STORY'. He got into bed with little prompting and sleep time became a lot easier for all of us.
A 'WHY STORY' thrills and entertains children, it also educates them on the simplest things and builds their imagination. Read the words creatively, at the level of the child. Add a bit of something here or there, to make it more fun as the words paint pictures in the child's mind. Few children stay awake after a 'WHY STORY' ends and they always want to hear it again and others like it, over again. The bold prints and simple words in this book makes it easy for children to read themselves, in due course. The captivating tale encourages them to improve their reading skills.
