Oidhche Mhath Tractar (Goodnight Tractor)

Good Night, Tractor by Michelle Robinson, illustrated by Nick East

 

This gentle, rhyming book is an excellent bedtime story. A bedtime story is an important part of helping children to relax and encouraging them to sleep well.

Children will quickly become familiar with the text and be able to read along with you. The mum in this video gives her son time to help with the rhyming words at the end of each page. This will help him to become familiar with the story, as well as the idea of rhyming words. Notice how she also points to some of the words in the book as she reads them -  this is a great thing to do because it helps children to start to recognise words.
