Sleep Sound with this Spooky Reading – The Book of Hallowe’en by Ruth Edna Kelley

Be warned that traditional Halloween traditions may be a bit disturbing, but I left out the nasty stuff. This spooky episode shouldn’t leave you sleepless.

Learn some of the traditions and tales of continental Europe, including the surprising revelation that Britain was considered to be the ‘Land of the Dead’ by communities on the Channel coast of France. As the mysterious land they could see on clear days was otherwise unknown to them.

Learn about how pagan traditions became ‘evil’ and which ones were adopted by Christianity.

SleepPhones, our exciting new partnership

In our experience the best way to experience the bedtime stories of Sleepy Time Tales is with some type of headphone or earbud, but they can be cumbersome and uncomfortable.

So we’ve partnered SleepPhones, manufacturers of headphones designed specifically to sleep in! They use a thin speaker fitted to a comfortable headband and have options from the cost effective wired headphones to the convenient Bluetooth model and will work with Sleepy Time Tales to improve your night’s sleep.
