Thoughts:  When I put together the Bedtime Routine Worksheet, I just naturally listed “Read” as one of the steps.  It wasn’t until talking to one of my storytime moms that I realized reading books isn’t always a part of the nighttime schedule for all kids.  I mean, I knew that not all children are read to at bedtime, but I had assumed that all of our storytime kids are.  So, I’m glad I included it since it got at least one mom thinking about including books at bedtime.
