Welcome back to my Bedtime Stories series. Little Man is having a story before his afternoon nap and his bedtime sleep so we are really getting through his collection of stories at the moment. So here are 3 more we have been enjoying in the last week or so.  Mo’s Smelly Jumper by David Bedford – This has become a firm favourite of Little Man’s, I have read it twice just today.
