In The Night Garden books for bedtime reading


by Emily Gilbert |

Chances are that you already know all about In The Night Garden, but if you don't, the popular kid's TV show is about a magical picture-book place that exists between waking and sleeping in a child’s imagination. It's inhabited by a diverse bunch of loveable characters including Igglepiggle, Upsy Daisy and Makka Pakka.

As well as introducing imaginative play and early language acquisition, the show helps little ones to understand routine, with each episode showing the characters going to bed at the very end of the programme. For many families, In The Night Garden is an ideal watch before bedtime.

Alternatively, if your child has watched all the episodes there is to watch, there are also many In The Night Garden books they're bound to love too as well. Just like the show, why not introduce them before bedtime? Just don't blame us if they want you to read them over and over again...
