A tired daddy lets his son have a turn being the parent at bedtime in the board book edition of You Be Daddy, a humorously charming companion picture book to You Be Mommy.

Daddy’s too tired to be Daddy tonight.
Can you be Daddy and hug me tight?

Run my bath nice and warm?
Snuggle close if there’s a storm?

Build me a bedtime fort for two.
One that fits just me and you.

In this clever, rhyming board book, a father tells his child that he's simply too tired to be Daddy tonight and asks his son to take over for him.

An utterly relatable theme told with humor and heart provides a story parents and children will delight in reading together at bedtime.
