 Less Than Two-Thirds of Mothers Read Bedtime Stories to Their Children

Less than two thirds of mothers admit to reading bedtime stories to their children even though nine in 10 revealed that they themselves were read such stories when they were children.

Online family retailer Littlewoods.com carried out the survey among 2,000 mothers of children less than seven years of age and found that less than 64 percent of them read bedtime stories though more than 91 percent were read stories by their mothers when they were children.
