Seriously, Just Go To Sleep Book Review

A few months ago, I heard all the controversy surrounding a book by Adam Mansbach. While I found it funny, I can see why some parents could be offended by a book called Go the F*** to Sleep. Seriously, Just Go To Sleep is the G-rated version of the first book. Chronicling a young child who wants to do anything but go to bed, it contains the same humor and sarcasm, but in a kid-friendly way.

The flowers doze low in the meadows
And high on the mountains so steep.
My life s absurd. This is taking forever.
Stop messing with me, please, and sleep.

At 7, Little Man knows it drives me crazy when he thinks of 24 different reasons why he can't go to sleep yet, so he giggled through the book. At one point he stopped me and asked if I really thought the sometimes. And, of course, he thought it was hilarious when I admitted I do.

We loved reading the book together as a family. Little Man was old enough to get the point of the book and laugh about it, while Babycakes loved the rhythm. I've been running on about 5 hours of broken sleep for 7 months and am exhausted by nightfall, so it was nice to know I'm not the only one frustrated at bedtime.

I highly recommend this to any parent needing a good laugh.

Buy It:
Seriously, Just Go To Sleep is available for around $10
