Book Review: "Go the F**k to Sleep"

Adam Mansbach’s new book: ”Go the F**K to Sleep”, is a nonconventional bed time story and is a huge hit among adults. A few verses of the book went viral on the internet before it was even published. It is so well received that it is number one on Amazon.com, and also number one on the New York Times best seller list. “Go the F**k to Sleep” was undoubtedly written to help the author cope with the tricky job of getting his young child to go to sleep at bedtime. But I warn you however, although the colorful illustrations are very nice and the rhythmic verses are funny, in no way is this new book meant to be read to children. This one is fun and is for adults only.
An excerpt from the book reads: “The windows are dark in the town child. The whales huddle down in the deep. I’ll read you one very last book if you swear you’ll go the f**k to sleep.” Profane words are scattered about on every page. “Go the F**k to Sleep” is funny and if you are a parent, it will bring to mind the many times you’ve tried to put an unwilling child to sleep when there are still things left to be done before you can finally get some rest for yourself. I believe that’s why this book throws a great punch. It hits the exact cord that gets you to laugh and reminisce on some of the aspects that goes with parenting. Just make sure you keep“Go to F**k to Sleep out the hands of your little ones.
I would have loved for this book to have been around during my years of stressing over getting my kids to sleep peacefully. It is humorous and will give a big boost in your mood.
