The former Nirvana drummer has recorded two stories for CBeebies, the first of which being Octopus’s Garden, illustrated by Ben Cort, which airs on Friday 8th October.
Grohl is father to Violet, 15, Harper, 12 and Ophelia, seven, with second wife Jordyn Blum.
This month the Everlong singer is publishing his memoir, The Storyteller: Tales Of Life And Music.
He recently told an audience at London's Savoy Theatre on a one-man tour to promote the book how he almost quit music after the death of Nirvana bandmate Kurt Cobain, from a heroin overdose in 1994.
Grohl said: "When Kurt died, I was lost. I was totally numb. I turned off the radio, I put my instruments away and I couldn’t bear it. I needed to disappear and get away.”
The musican revealed he flew to Ireland to spend time alone and but when he saw a hitchhiker wearing a Kurt Cobain T-shirt, he was inspired to start writing songs again.
Earlier this year Grohl co-hosted The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, conducting interviews, taking part in sketches and even performing a couple of musical numbers.
Grohl joins a long line of stars to appear on CBeebies Bedtime Stories, including Sir Elton John, Dolly Parton, Tom Hardy, Tom Hiddleston, Tom Hardy, Regé-Jean Page, Orlando Bloom, Felicity Jones and Oti Mabuse.
CBeebies Bedtime Stories airs each weekday at 6.50pm on the CBeebies channel and is also available on BBC iPlayer.
