What to expect

Igniting a passion for reading from a young age is so important for a child's development and sparks up their imaginations from early on. Have you been looking for a soothing storytelling session that your kids can snuggle down to before they settle down for the night? Join CBeebies Bedtime Stories every evening, as part of the Bedtime Hour, for a story read by a different celebrity each night.

Famous faces will be reading a different story every day – from Tom Hardy to Dolly Parton, Isla Fisher to Robert Webb and everyone in between. And if this time doesn't fit in with your bedtime schedule, don't worry, the stories are always available to watch on on iPlayer for 30 days after being shown on television. You can find even more storytelling videos online, from former First Lady Michelle Obama to Gruffalo creator Julia Donaldson.
