From Goodreads ~ "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, he opens up a conversation about parenting, granting us permission to admit our frustrations and laugh at their absurdities.
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.
This has been on the Toronto Star's top ten books for a while so I thought I'd check it out.
It's cute and I imagine very true.
It's quite short ... only 32 pages. But it's a fun read.
Here's a sample (it's page 12) ... click on it to make it bigger.
