I received this book for free from in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.Go the F**k to Sleep by Adam Mansbach
Go the F**k 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**k 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. - Amazon
I’m a big Samuel Jackson fan, so when I heard he was narrating a bedtime story named Go The F**k To Sleep I knew I had to read it. I listened to the Audible version since it was offered free to members.
I can’t say I fell out of my seat laughing, but I found it amusing. I would say this is a bedtime story for adults, because I don’t know many parents that will tell their kids out loud to GO THE F**K TO SLEEP. Even though I am aware a lot of parents may have those thoughts in their head.
