Goodnight Poems

Goodnight sleep tight! A great time to read poetry to children is before bedtime, so they can drift off to sleep dreaming about the wonderful world of rhyme. On this page you will find all different kinds of bedtime rhymes, verse, lyrics, and more. From the sandman to old fashioned lullabies, we’ll be gathering poems that encourage kids to rest and relax. Let us know if you have any suggestions for poets and their writing that celebrate happy dreams and a good night’s sleep. 🙂
