“Bed time,” says the Mother. “No,” says the baby. In his toy car the baby speeds away to a world of make-believe. He may only be able to go a few yards, but in his head he’s on the road looking for someone to play with. But no one wants to play at this time of night – not even the moon. Ideal for reading aloud right before the lights go out.
