Inky, an octopus in the National Aquarium of New Zealand, recently made a spectacular escape from his tank, as reported by the New York Times. A daring and scary octopus escape also features in Chapter 9 of KidSlumber Bedtime Stories Volume 2 in the story of ‘The Itch Witch’. 🦑
An interesting article referring to recent research suggests that mothers and fathers deliver bedtime stories differently. An excerpt:
“Children benefit more from their father reading them bedtime stories than their mother, new research has revealed. Questions posed by men when reading to children were found to have sparked ‘imaginative discussions’ in the study at Harvard University in the United States. Researchers said it was therefore better for children’s language development because they tended to be challenged more.”

Txtr, a Berlin-based e-book device and retail platform, has declared bankruptcy with plans to restructure operations and offer its assets for acquisition. Although the txtr webstore continues to operate, in a limited way, KidSlumber books have been withdrawn from this retailer. We wish txtr good luck.
Summer is coming. (Note that, George RR Martin). Long car rides with children desperate for distraction. Hot nights and cranky kids who can’t get to sleep. What to do? Why not give them something different; a modern bedtime story.

KidSlumber Bedtime Stories Volume 1 has been reviewed at razberryjuice.com.
“Twelve short stories, written especially to be read to children (ages 5+ ish) before bed, they are all short enough to be read in one sitting (the author estimates about 10 – 15 minutes per story). They won’t cause nightmares, or set young minds off thinking too much, when you want to be lulling them off to sleep. Each story is complete and unrelated to the others, I chose six from the book to read and found each one to be original and well written, young girls or boys will enjoy the gentle tales, most of which seem to have a moral attached to them, ending with a rhyme and of course a happy ending.
Kidslumber Bedtime Stories Volume 1 is great value, 12 stories each will be enjoyed, I am sure more than once, the suggested age is 5+, but I would think any child at school would enjoy these stories (about age 4+), they are easy to read and not too taxing to understand, and as with all good bedtime stories, contain just a sprinkle of magic and fantasy!”
Razberry Juice rated the book 4 stars! ⭐⭐⭐⭐
