I didn't realize that this sleep thing would so become exactly as it is in the book...now, I have a toddler...she never sleeps and she walks and she talks and she demands things late at night when she should be sleeping and this book sings to my soul; even with all of the cussing...not that I would EVER cuss that much SERIOUSLY! Does anybody cuss that much? I think that's what makes the book so funny...it's sooo over the top.
Go the F*** to Sleep is a bedtime book for parents who live in the real world, where a few snoozing kitties and cutesy rhymes don't always send a toddler sailing blissfully off to dreamland. Profane, affectionate, and radically honest, California Book Award-winning author Adam Mansbach's verses perfectly capture the familiar—and unspoken—tribulations of putting your little angel down for the night. In the process, they open up a conversation about parenting, granting us permission to admit our frustrations, and laugh at their absurdity.
With illustrations by Ricardo Cortes, Go the F*** to Sleep is beautiful, subversive, and pants-wettingly funny—a book for parents new, old, and expectant. You probably should not read it to your children.
