"Every night it's the same old thing, with dad refusing to go to bed. He wants to play, read stories, even sleep with me, and when he makes his pleading face, I always give in and read him another story. But that's it, since enough is enough. When it gets really tough, I tell myself "Have courage. We're almost there." A boy's playful account of trying to put his dad to sleep gives children a delightful heads-up on what a pain they can be at bedtime, while affirming the tender bond between father and son. A joyful, sweet, laughter-inducing book that children will clamor to read again and again!"-- Provided by publisher.

We loved this book. My boys (3 and 6) couldn't stop giggling once they realized it was dad who wouldn't go to sleep!

A very sweet and funny father and son bedtime story that reverses the role of the parent with that of the child who doesn't want to go to bed yet. Large and interesting illustrations.

I liked it when the dad was swinging on the light.

"Good night", says dad, in a small, faraway voice.
