is creating children's bedtime stories

Baby Edward stories are for bedtime and written especially to get children to sleep.  They use a formula and structure (see description below) to engage and relax your children. They are short, but if all goes to plan you won't reach the end!

The book: Where is Baby Edward? is currently available on Amazon. If you help me through Patreon you are effectively my publishers, allowing new stories to be written as part of the series and new exciting audio versions to be recorded.  Thank you for helping the stories and characters grow into something parents can share with their children at bedtime.

Hear beginning (at the Baby Edward website: get the kids to sleep .com)

Why it Works.
The stories employ established techniques such as repeated melodic phrases (read in a hushed, gentle tones), characters that yawn (studies have shown this to be contagious especially with children) and the occasional sound that is similar to “white noise” (like a waterfall or radio interference) which is widely used as a sleep aid for babies and likened to sounds experienced in the womb.

How it Developed
During my children's early childhood I would tell stories at bedtime. This was the one they kept asking for, and miraculously it always worked. It developed over time to become more structured and still never fails to get them to sleep. In many years of telling the story I have only reached the end two or three times.
