If your child is anything like my toddler, they are constantly on the go. Children are little balls of rambunctious energy and it can be tough to fit in that ever-important reading time as our kiddos careen from one activity to the next. Fortunately, there are all sorts of bite-sized stories tailor-made for those seemingly ever-shrinking moments of downtime. Whether you’re looking for a quick wind-down before their nap or bedtime, hoping to capitalize on a quiet moment, or simply need a quick reset for the day, these five-minute story collections are just the ticket.
