Time for Bed, Daddy

Synopsis

'Come on, Daddy, it's time for bed.' 'But I'm not tired,' says Daddy. In every household with children, from the moment that bedtime is announced until the light is finally switched off, bedtime is full of fun and frustration, puns and procrastination. From getting in the bath and putting on PJs to brushing teeth and reading a story, Time for Bed, Daddy flips the fun on bedtime, celebrating the special relationship that fathers share with their children.
