Go The F*ck To Sleep By Adam Mansbach

Written in the style of a children's book, ''Go the F to Sleep'' unabashingly drops the F-bomb in the text-
Dina Santorelli

This is one of the funniest books I've ever read- 
The four of us laughed our A$$'s off when I read it out loud- over and over. 
My monkeys are just old enough to appreciate the humor and see some of their own transparent antics in play.  They also happen to think it is hilarious when an adult says the F word.  
(Having said that they know not to use it- at least in front of adults- I'm a realist and far from a saint).

The story is that the author, Adam Mansbach, was exasperated with his 2yo taking so long to fall asleep- 
He posted on Facebook "Look out for my forthcoming children’s book, Go the — to Sleep"
and got positive feedback from many of his friends, so he wrote the book! 
I love: 'how it came about' stories like this!

Every page is 'the best' but this one rings particularly true for me: 

This one reminds me of my 2yo niece CP who we spent a few weeks with this summer
My amazing SIL, who's a much more patient mother than I, spent hours trying to get her daughter to nap- CP who was potty training at the time used this excuse often-

This one reminds me of my youngest- who needs a lot of 'friends' and Zombie Spray to sleep
Have you read this book?

I haven't read it but a couple fb friends have posted about it. Thanks for posting the inside ... the lyrics are catchy! And funny. It took forever for my son to fall a sleep @ night and nap, but for some reason I was determined that he would...probably because he was tired and bumping into walls. I don't think he would remember all the excuses he used though!

Too damn funny-I love this book! I feel for my parents whenever I see it-I had terrible colic as a kid and I was such a pain!

This is the funniest book! I met the author when I was in New York in May. Everyone was talking about this book and they had a hard time keeping it stocked. Very authentic book and so funny.

I listened to the audio version of this book narrated by Samuel L. Jackson which made it extra hilarious.

Maybe You'll Enjoy These Too...
