It is time to sleep, and you cannot wait to hit the bed. You tuck in your little angels in bed and kiss them good night. As you turn away, a little voice says, “read us a story, mommy.” Despite being tired, you go back and pick up a book. Soon, you and the kids drift into a world of fiction, where elephants fly, frogs sing, lions dance and unicorns are real!

There is nothing more joyous than reading a story with your little one. At MomJunction, we love telling stories. So here is our list of the best bedtime stories for kids you can get your hands on.

Guess How Much I Love You is a short story featuring two rabbits measuring their love for each other. It is a timeless tale that can teach and encourage your children to express their feelings of love and affection.

The Little Gingerbread Man - by Carol Moore - A surprising new version of the classic Gingerbread Man fairy tale.

The Journey of the Noble Gnarble - by Daniel Errico - Illustrated by Christian Colabelli - Deep below the ocean waves a gnarble fish dreams of seeing the sun and sky. Also available at Amazon in hardcover and Kindle editions.

Invisible Alligators - by Hayes Roberts - Little Sari discovers invisible alligators quietly sneaking around creating trouble for her and everyone else.

The season to be frightened, Halloween, is close upon us. Like many parents, you may cringe at your child's request for spooky stories, deeming them too terrifying for young folk. You might even worry that the stories' evil characters send the wrong message. So you forgo the traditional account of Hansel and Gretel for one that ends with the witch becoming a vegetarian. Or maybe you steer clear of these tales altogether -- hoping to ensure that your child will sleep nightmare-free ever after.

But scary tales serve an important purpose, say psychologists and children's literature specialists. Like the late Bruno Bettelheim, PhD, a psychologist best known for his groundbreaking book, The Uses of Enchantment: The Meaning and Importance of Fairy Tales , these experts believe that frightening stories can not only provide great entertainment (think of the nail-biting chase scene in Jack and the Beanstalk ), they also help kids through key developmental stages.

It's natural for children, at various ages, to worry about being less loved than a sibling, starting school, and perhaps worst of all, being lost or abandoned. "Nothing is scarier than the thought of getting separated from your parents or having your parents die," says Lawrence Sipe, PhD, a professor of children's literature at the University of Pennsylvania's Graduate School of Education in Philadelphia. Rather than instilling these fears in children, fairy tales actually help kids face the fears they already have -- and vanquish them.
