Under the Covers

Winter days may be shorter, but winter nights are cuddlier! Cozy up with your child and enjoy hot cocoa and a story! Nightly reading doesn’t just provide an opportunity for bonding between parent and child. Neuroscientists have theorized that reading bedtime stories also decreases cortisol levels in children, thereby lowering their stress levels. Not to mention, snuggling up with a parent to read in a quiet, calming environment helps children associate reading with comfort and fun, increasing the likelihood that they will continue to enjoy reading throughout their lives. This winter, curl up under the covers with your child and read! You can find a wide selection of books at tinyreaderspublishing.com.

Author Carolyn Mikelson

A former elementary school teacher, Carolyn Mikelson has always loved children’s literature. She enjoyed the whimsy of creating spontaneous stories for her kindergarten and first grade students, and later treated her own four children to a new oral bedtime story every night. Carolyn was thrilled to move into the world of publishing after her children became a bit older, and began working as a children’s literature editor at TRP in 2014. Carolyn makes her home in the far west Chicago suburbs, where she enjoys spending time outdoors, at the theatre, and at other fine arts and cultural events. During her free time, she teaches reading, writing, and speaking English to immigrant women in her area. Carolyn is member of the Society of Children’s Book Writers and Illustrators.
