The biggest thing was to have a good bedtime routine (shower, bath, teethbrush, snack, whatever) then read a couple of really quality books. I loved introducing children to good kid's books and often to chapter books as they fell asleep. Hearing good literature read to them is SOOO important to kids building a good vocabulary and learning to read themselves.
This exactly!
